Description

Image of two black jockeys coming in on white jockey amid a cheering crowd. For a drama. An unusual double sided poster with the back advertising ‘A Night at the Circus’ by H. Grattan Donnelly with the credit to The Strobridge Litho Company. Highly detailed crowd in big top surrounding title. Shows an impressive large group of expressive faces beautifully drawn. (Equestrian /Horses /Racing) This poster apparently was trimmed of its white borders but the rest of the images are intact. It’s very unusual to have a double sided poster. Perhaps this one was destined due to being printed on a heavy stock to put in a window so that both sides could be seen. (Big Top /Crowds /Afro-American) Both images in very fine to near mint condition with no restoration.
