Vintage Circus Posters

I was inspired to check out the Ringling Circus Museum’s website after reading Sara Gruen’s novel, “Water for Elephants”. The story takes place in the 1930′s and is about a veterinary student who abandons his life and finds himself on a traveling circus. Take a look at the Ringling Circus Museum’s vintage circus posters here. I especially love the beautiful collection of European circus posters, seen here.
