Circus Poster Collection!

Just started listing some beautiful vintage circus posters on eBay! They all come from an old time collection of 1940s era circus posters I've just taken in on consignment from a South Jersey collector. The graphics are unbelievable on these and the colors are so vibrant! Each of the posters are a unique work of lithography. Tigers, Hippos, Clowns! Each poster screams Circus! All posters are guaranteed original and any one of them would look super framed on your wall!
The circus depended on it's advertising to announce that it was coming to town. The circus often spent more money on advertising than any other industry at the time! Litho posters were a colorful and attractive way to advertise their shows. Advance "scouts" would travel ahead of each circus and post signs and posters for everyone to see. The success of the circus depended on filling the tent with paying customers and they went all out on designing and printing these colorful advertisements. Many of these old posters were torn down after the event and they are difficult to find in good condition.
Thanks for looking at my latest items up for bid!
