"Sadly the only way such things survive is if taken by another park or attraction of some sort. This looks like it would have been good even for an indoor type place like a shopping mall. Could have had puppet shows somewhere…"
Thanks for this heartfelt tribute to the late great Jimmy Rowland. One can only imagine what a force in pupetry he might have been had he not left us so young. Through your thoughtfullness his work is being preserved to inspire another generation of puppeteers.
Hope you enjoy the photo's Although my friendship with Jimmy was not long it spanned several years and has left me feeling shorted for additional time. "Jimmy you are missed" Thanks for so many wonderful pieces and a mark of excellence to admire and seek in your art. Truly puppetry was "Your Art"
Thank You for sharing so many wonderful photos of a life's work, truly worth celebrating. You have brought to light a brilliant talent, I might have other wise missed. Jimmy's charm and showmanship can be seen in every photo.
