I have to be at this place by 6:30 this morning for an out-patient operation, a little slicing and dicing involved this time.

This great lithograph from 1915 presents a very crisp and clean image on behalf of Barnum & Bailey. A bold presentation of the circus title - under the big top and portraits of the show founders. Classic advertising and a fine circus poster promoting "The Greatest Show on Earth."

Rwanda will start importing rhinos and lions from South Africa next year, after its own wildlife was decimated by poaching and conflict. Rwanda has only one rhino, while lions disappeared when refugees returning home after the 1994 genocide occupied parts of a national park.

This is relative material from my mother's scrap books, mostly National Geographic.

The following color panels are all from a full-page ad for Camel cigarettes which appeared on the back cover of the September 12, 1938 issue of LIFE Magazine. (I seem to recall that this same ad or one similar to it ran in one of the Ringling programs from around that time.) The fact that it was done in comic strip fashion tells us much about the level of sophistication of the target audience.

It has been 108 years since the last nail was pounded into the United States Bandwagon. And it's still going strong.
