      I found the exact same poster (clowns) that you have above. Someone had put it out for trash. I am also hoping to find more information on its history.

      Very freaky, like a horror movie. Anyone seen 'It'?

      In 1931 the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows branched off from its traditional lithographers (Strobridge and Central Ptg and Illinois Litho) to the Morgan Litho Company of Cleveland, Ohio. This clown image is one of several designs that Morgan (not to be confused with Russell-Morgan of Cincinnati) executed for the Greatest Show on Earth. All of the designs were less traditional than what circus fans were accustomed to - and this clown image was only used that one year. In the 1970s-80s reproductions of this poster (along with the Barnum & London "Jumbo" litho seen above) were sold by the thousands by mail-order and at performances of the Ringling-Barnum circus.
