Circus posters from another time and perhaps another planet.

All above from a site called Hearing Voices, which they say “is the largest collective of independent radio producers this side of the semi-planet Pluto” They did some circus stories for radio and found posters at the Library of Congress site, here. Other pics of the L of C here

If this inspires you to go to a circus this summer, remember, what you find there can sometimes be a little unusual, if not downright creeeepy. But GO.
