    Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: The Great Alzanas (1950s). Fine+ on Linen. Circus Poster (27" X 20.5"). Miscellaneous.
    One of the star attractions at The Greatest Show on Earth from 1947 to until 1964, English-born performer Harold Alzana became famous for his daring stunts on the high-wire, done with quick ascents, 45 degree inclines, and mainly without balancing poles. His sisters, Hilda and Elsie, joined him in his stunts for several years, the finale of their act seen here with their awe-inspiring bicycle routine. A partially restored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have edge wear, creasing, tears, pinholes, small chips, smudging, and/or faint toning. Minor restoration has addressed some of these issues.
