Theme Thursday - Circus


Once upon a long time ago, the barns in the country were backdrops for advertising posters. Most often seen advertised were Mail Pouch Tobacco, See Rock City, and traveling circuses. I found this photo of an old barn, and superimposed the circus posters. It makes me feel rather melancholy! Thanks for looking. I hope it's a trip down memory lane for some of you as well!

  1. What a cool idea, Bev! I did digital too, but I didn't think up such a neat trick as you did. Gorgeous art.

  3. What a great, out of the frame, take on the circus theme. I love it. The old grey barn has had a face lift and it looks good. Fantastic, Bev.

  8. What a smashing idea Bev, I've never seen this before but I bet this kind of advertising had a captive audience for miles and miles.

  9. Love it Bev! I've been feeling so nostalgic lately, and this post took me back yet again. There is a barn just a few miles from where I live that still has some advertising on it. If I ever get a new camera, I'll send you a pic.

    Hugs,
