Souvenir program from the final year of this venerable circus, "a supreme achievement in clean amusement," which its owner Ringling closed down in 1932. Lists 23 acts and displays, with the performers' names. Acrobats, clowns, trapeze artists ("a coterie of lady gymnasts on swinging ladders"), big cats, elephants, equestrian acts, all closing with "a real rodeo" with trick roping and riding. One equestrian act was an "English Steeplechase, introducing the world's champion high, broad and liberty jumping horses, featuring Miss Etta Carreon, internationally famous rider." Lots of cigarette ads. Sold as is. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $50.00
