Thanks Jim, I had no photos of Circus USA...or the Toby Tyler banners. BTW I got the TT banner back twice...Got it once when I bought a job lot of stuff ...sold it to a fan in Miami and about 3 years later got it back again when I bought a bunch of costumes and illusions from Cypress Gardens, It wasn't included in the deal but they were using it as a dust cover . I asked for it and they gave it to me. I sold it ( again) to a collector in St.Louis and I THINK he sold it later to a restaurant. Ended up making more reselling it than what I got paid originally.

Ward called me the fastest sign painter he ever saw....One year I was in Waed's yard working on cases for his wax museum...Johnny Meah was there doing some touch up on banners... While we had known each other for several years, he had never seen me at work... he went home for lunch and came back with a video camera and taped me for about an hour...I have NEVER considered my work "art"...I'm a lettering guy who can fake a banner...I've always considered my artwork/pictorials to be somewhat crude but I always could get the job done quick,if need be....Johnny and Bill Browning are fantastic artist and do beautiful work... I usually spend about 4 to 5 hours on an average banner. I used to be able to a complete semi ( both sides,front and back ) in a day. I have slowed down as I've gotten older...a semi takes about a day and a half now.. Last winter I did a 60 ft RAIDERS front in a day...I couldn't move the next day,I was so sore.

Jim, the pics of the banners you sent me were fabulous. The artwork is magnificent. You have a great talent. Like I said earlier, it is the artwork on the banners that attract the people to come inside the tent. Oh how I long for the old days when the midway was adorned with all those beautiful banners.
