I know this one is a bit odd, but it makes me happy! This poster is for the Forepaugh and Sells Brothers’ Circus in 1898 announcing their “congress of the giant birds of the world” not exhibited at any other show!
Come one, come all! See the full image inside the post.

I picked these up about 15 years ago at an antiques fair (yep, I was buying stuff like this since I was little tot). I loved how emotional these were- from the stoic faces marching off to war, and everyone being overly excited when they came home. Every time I look at the guy with a life preserver on his neck, I can’t not smile. It’s so interesting to me, getting to glimpse at a moment in these people’s lives; and to think they no longer exist..and yet they can still make me smile. Vintage photos are pretty thought provoking. I hope you enjoy these :)
