artist models: midway 1939

reposted from: The Circus Blog

Burke’s Carnival midway 1939.  Norman Prather painted the banner lines and he owned the show. The lady out front is a “come on”.  She misled the men by standing in a pose.  They thought they would see her nude when inside, but all they saw was painting of partially nude women hanging from the sidewall and racks.  There were a lot of disappointed men and quite a few beefs !  The sign was big and bold and during a disagreement they would just point to the banner.
