S T O R Y
In the early nineteenth century, the United States was a new, developing country with settlers steadily pushing the American frontier westward. To reach their public, showmen had little choice but to travel light and fast.

In 1825, Joshuah Purdy Brown became the first circus entrepreneur to replace the usual wooden construction with a full canvas tent. J. Purdy Brown came from the region of Somers, New York, where a cattle dealer named Hachaliah Bailey had purchased a young African elephant, which he exhibited around the country with great success. Soon the addition of other exotic animals led to the creation of a bona fide traveling menagerie. Clowns also became an integral part of the circus, offering a source of amusement for patrons and providing relief from the array of animal acts and performances by acrobats and novelty artistes. {circopedia} {wiki}

Postage Tip: If you need more than the standard 49cents for your mailing you can use vintage postage alongside of current USPS stamps. So you could use a current USPS stamp (you can see what they have to offer at the USPS website) and then add ??cents worth of vintage postage to complete the arrangement. This can be a cost and space effective way to add that vintage touch. Something old and something new!
