 Wed in a Lion's Cage: Circus Queen's Active at 103

Wed in a Lion's Cage: Circus Queen's Active at 103

Madame Rosa appears at the circus apartment doorway in sparkling diamonds, red lipstick and a walking frame and sits down beside her leopard skin rug.

"That's Mickey," exclaims the 103-year-old doyenne of Europe's most famous circus, pointing to all that remains of her former pet.

"He died of old age. We had him a long time," she says nostalgically, while offering a visitor one of her luxury Swiss chocolates.

Soon, anecdotes from the matriarch of Paris' famed Winter Circus come pouring out: how she got married in a lion's den, once entered a posh hotel carrying a baby primate in a hat box, and helped raise a parrot known for its foul use of the French language.

 Lupe Robb, We Miss You

Lupe Robb was part of Carson & Barnes with her sister Beatriz.
She met her husband E. L. Robb on the circus.
Most of these photos are Lupe before the circus. She was a recording artist in Mexico. She was very well known all over Mexico. I do not know much about Lupe and her family. I will learn.

Please see her Photos and email me if you have any stories you can share.
