This is just a smattering of some of the posters I need to sell. My Dad had rolls and rolls of posters and then a stack of flat ones. It appears that the flat ones were the cream of the crop with some of them being linen backed already. This one is. The barn still has one pony sized parade wagon, a 40' ring curb, my uncles table rock tables, the banners and bannerline poles, 3 aluminum poles, A 30' Anchor tent frame, some harness, block & tackles and gosh knows what all else. I live 650 miles from my folks. I don't have a barn or storage facilities. Sadly, something has to go. So I'll be moving a lot of this on eBay ( http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/tigeract ) and on my website at ( http://www.thecircusworld.com )

The Beggs Wagon Co. out of Kansas City, Missouri was a leading manufacturer of circus wagons for many years. They even created a catalogue of their work. An original is now being offered on eBay for almost $500.00. This catalogue is a reproduction issued in 1973 with all the great images and information in tact. This is the Front Cover.
