    Description

    Circus Poster (Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, 1932). Poster (28.25 X 42").
    A lavishly adorned elephant trumpets the arrival of "The Greatest Show on Earth," Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus. Its earth shaking "5 Big Herds of Performing Elephants" must surely have awed audiences, and this poster is an excellently preserved piece of American entertainment history. Touchup has been applied to small chips in the borders, and a tear in the right border that extends slightly into the background. Very Fine on Linen.
