    This was made by Edward Neumann (whose studio was located at 120 North Ann Street in Chicago) Made sideshow banners. A 12 x 20 ft was $48.00 back then and for a extra $1.50 he would add rope around the edges. This was around the 1910-1920 era. Dave

    I would do that, they can go from $1,000. and up. American Pickers found 2 of these on one of thier shows by another artrist and sold one for 10,000.00 and another for $5,000.00. Its all come to who wants it bad enough. Dave
