circus wonderment!

04Dec09

My beloved Shelburne Museum, an institution of nearly unparelledly eclectic American kookiness, has some photos illustrating their unlikely-sounding acquisition of hundred-year-old circus posters, after they were discovered and rescued from a house in Colchester, VT. I’d heard about this, it’s really fucking wunder fantastic. Someday I will manage to get into the basement cave of circus posters. The circus show is surely going to rule. I want to get a Lucia-the-carousel-giraffe tattoo.
I think I would have liked Electra Havemeyer Webb (the museum’s founder) just fine.
Electra and puppers!
