Polack Alley from the '60s

Photo courtesy of Bill Strong



The 1963 (possibly '64) Polack Bros. Clown Alley are, L to R, : Johnny Cirliano, Peluza, Dick "Rocko Lewis, & Al Ackerman.

The woman in the center of it all is Joanne Pinson , when she was on Polack with The Flying Ray-Dens.

This photo would have been towards the end of Dick Lewis' career. Not too long after this he would break his neck in the ring performing his table rock act.

Much of Rocko's clown possesions are on display at Circus World or in the library.
