The traveling circus was "here today and gone tomorrow". The one day stop included two performances. Circus management sent an advance crew two weeks ahead of time to let everyone know that the show was coming. The posters were 28" x 42" and hung in store windows by the hundreds. Larger posters hung on buildings and barns. The big circus came in on the railroad and thought nothing of posting 5,000 to 8,000 posters.Only the one remains in the town.
