The Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.<br />
<br />
A collection of rare 125-year-old posters advertising a world-renowned circus billed as "the greatest show on earth" have emerged for sale for £20,000.<br />
<br />
The stunning posters publicised the famed Barnum and Bailey travelling circus which wowed crowds all over the globe in the late 1800s and early 1900s.<br />
<br />
The five rare posters have been put up for sale by American businessman Sanford Rich, who had previously displayed them on the walls of his renowned delicatessen Kopperman's, an institution in St Louis, Missouri.<br />
<br />
Experts have tipped the posters to fetch $30,000 - around £20,000 - when they go under the hammer at Link Auctions in St Louis on November 14.
