Forepaugh and Sells Brothers Great Show Consolidated
Sells Brothers Circus was started by Lewis Sells and Peter Sells in the United States. It ran from 1862 to 1863 and again from 1871 to 1895. It merged with the circus operated by Adam Forepaugh to form the Forepaugh-Sells Brothers' Circus in 1900. This poster shows the scale of the operation. The enormous tents were enticing as a viewer of the poster would definitely want to know what went on inside.
