Miss Cilly

I'm such a busy little bee these days.. No time for anything but work, work, work...

Just wanted to show you this wonderful photo of Miss Cilly and her tiger from Circus Krone sometime in the 1930's....


  1. Brilliant! Is she actually carrying the tiger on her shoulders? Must be a strong lady! x

  2. I spent years trying to establish her name and can now positively identify Miss Cilly as having been Christa Hetterich, born in 1909 in Dinslaken, Germany. She indeed held the tiger, but with a frame in the dress to support her. She did this act for seven years.
