Barnum & Bailey / High Air Exhibition. 1909
Artist: ANONYMOUS Size: 38 3/4 x 28 7/8 in./98.4 x 73.2 cm Strobridge Litho, Cincinnati Not one but three aerialist troupes pepper the sky in this poster. One group in particular, the Seigrist Silbons, were the best-known trapeze artists in the United States by 1905, with Walter Silbon able to perform a double and a half spin between bars. To have multiple acrobatic teams enhanced not only the splendor of the show but created and impressive impact on any potential customer.
B+/ Slight tears at vertical fold.
