This is an original vintage c.1950s for the Clyde Beatty – Cole Bros. Combined Circus with artwork by the prolific circus poster designer Roland Butler. This poster measures 28” x 21” and still has the original snipe for the circus appearance at Beloit, Wisconsin attached making overall dimensions with snipe attached about 36.25” x 21”. This poster has moderate handling wear, toning from age and some offsetting to the print in places. There are three small pieces of library tape attached to the top edge on the back of the poster including one that repairs a tear of a couple inches. This poster displays nicely and is a vintage original in very good condition overall.
