1914 Miller Brothers 101 Ranch Wild West Show Poster
Let me begin by stating that this wonderful poster is not a reproduction,it was one of many colorful and detailed posters and other material purchased in a full size circus collection folio.I will be offering more of these over the next several weeks for those interested in original circus art--see my other auctions.Most were from various circuses appearances in North Carolina towns during the 1890s-1920s era and this one has the bottom location header of Lexington (North Carolina) with the month and date ,the year is from a credit on the left hand sheet"from New York World Magazine May 24,1914".The visual content is great with troupe of 1001 Ranch Indians shown at right,cowgirls at left.The folio had posters glued on pages back to back and on the back of this one are bits and pieces from others hows and Western personages.The 101 Ranch sheet measures appr.13 x 21"and shows good color,some light wear.Great display backdrop for any circus or Wild West show collection and with local interest for North Carolinians.It will ship rolled and boxed for protection....The scan is generally accurate as to condition but if you have questions ---please email prior to auction close regarding condition or other pertinent questions. We'd rather answer them before than after as it saves
