Barnum & Bailey - 1906

This is an original out of the October 13, 1906 Billboard on pages 28 and 29. Being the large show that they were, they garnered a huge double page spread. They had already completed their huge tours of England and Europe and were now re-establishing themselves as a powerful Circus in America. The Barnum & Bailey show was operating under an ownership of Barnum & Bailey Ltd. with George O. Starr as the Chairman, Fred B. Hutchinson and Charles B. Hutchinson as Directors.

Hard to believe that those outfits they're wearing were hip and trendy in their time --- one guy does look like a bagpiper I know ,and he's out on bail!
