What we're they thinking! - incredibly inappropriate circus artworks from a time before political correctness was ever heard off come up for sale.<br />
<br />
A collection of original artwork for vintage circus posters that hark back to a less politically correct time have emerged for sale for more than £30,000.<br />
<br />
Over 300 classic designs are set to go under the hammer, several of which involve performing animals in fancy dress as part of the act.<br />
<br />
They were produced by W. E. Berry Ltd of Bradford, West Yorks, who were industry leaders for posters for more than 75 years from the 1920s.<br />
<br />
The firm made and distributed posters for the likes of Disney, Universal and Columbia Pictures during a highly successful period at the top.
