Giant 1885 Circus Poster

A nine-foot-high, 55-foot-long circus poster on a building wall was recently uncovered during a renovation. Being paper, it wouldn't have survived if it hadn't been walled-over. Now restored and a showpiece at the Corral Bar and Riverside Grille.

[John Bradley, 05/28/2019]

The full-color poster advertised the Great Anglo-American Circus and Menagerie performance on August 17, 1885. The wall was originally outside, facing the Chippewa River, to promote the circus to passing boats.
