In America, a sideshow is an extra, secondary production associated with a circus, carnival, fair, or other such attraction. Everyone is familiar with the strongman, the bearded lady, or the Siamese twins Chang and Eng, but they were not the only examples of—for lack of a better word—circus freaks. Interest in sideshows finally declined as television made it easy (and free) to see the world's most exotic attractions. Moreover, viewing "human oddities" became distasteful as the public conscience changed, and many localities passed laws forbidding the exhibition of freaks.
The banner is in good condition for it's age and only shows some minor signs of cosmetic wear.
