Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey, the 1946 circus poster ("The Greatest Show on Earth"; "World's Biggest Menagerie") promoting a show featuring Bill Bailey art of a charging rhino. The modern version of the circus started in 1919 when the Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth, a circus created by P. T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey, was merged with the Ringling Bros. World's Greatest Shows. With weakening attendance and high operating costs, the circus closed on May 21st, 2017 after 146 years
Artist: Bill Bailey
Important Added Info: Note that we have never before auctioned this circus poster! Also note that this circus poster was printed in 4 sections designed to overlap. Also note that the theater that used this poster glued two pairs of the pieces together before putting them on display, thus turning it into a two piece poster, even though it was originally printed in four pieces (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces).

Condition: good to very good. The theater that used this poster glued two pairs of the pieces together before putting them on display (see above).
