Vintage circus pictures  
Hello guys! First post here - but a good one I hope. Enjoy! :)

All pictures come from the wonderful book "The Circus, 1870-1950" by TASCHEN, which contains about 900 other color and B&W vintage illustrations and photographs! It's a must-have for any circus lover.

More info about this incredible book can be found here. You can leaf through the book here, too.
