Found 6 Vintage
Sideshow Canvas Banners - Info Needed
Hoping to find out
a bit more on these sideshow banners. I'd like to sell them
for a local lady who's had them in the closet for years. She

they were found is in Mid-Missouri, but her family is from the
The banners are
large, each measures approximately 7ft x 6ft (most are a
little larger). The banners are all hand painted in very
bright colors and each is in very good to excellent condition.
They aren't signed anywhere that I can see. However, I'd say
they are all from the same artist. I'm wondering if anyone can
ID the artist and the time period or even the particular
circus or carnival.
