I am trying to save as many of these old ads as I can.  Many are beginning to decompose.

Cristiani Circus Western Show

| December 6, 2009

I personally never knew the Cristianis to have an after show, but as you see  in this ad,  they must have added a congress of Cowboys and Indians to compete with other circuses.  Note the other great names. In the late 1950’s our family went to visit the Christianis when they played El Monte, CA.

This is an overlay ad where two ads are put together to make a change in a rush for a dead line…………. Doesn’t look too good but it made the paper. You can see where it does not line up properly.
