Circus Posters

Updated on October 8, 2014

Circus Advertising - Vintage Circus Posters

In days gone by, when the circus came to town, that was something to get excited about.

The circus posters went up with colorful graphics of the big top, the circus animals, and the general wonderful feeling that came with something so grand coming to a town near you!

Circus advertising was done mainly with circus posters that let everyone know that the circus was coming to town. Now you can decorate your home with these great old posters.

Circus Freaks

Freaks is a derogatory term, but many people

with physical abnormalities actually improved

their way of life by joining the circus.

They were accepted and paid for doing a job when they often couldn't get work otherwise.
