    P.T. Barnum, “The Greatest Showman on Earth”, was born 201 years ago today. Barnum was best known as one of the founders of Barnum & Bailey’s Circus, and he was probably the first man to become a millionaire from “show business“. He’s remembered as a brilliant businessman, showman, entertainer, entrepreneur, and scam artist. When traveling with the circus, Barnum (like any other traveling entertainer of the time) would distribute posters to the towns his circus was scheduled to appear in, and as you’ll see from this gallery, some of the old Barnum & Bailey’s Circus posters are simply astounding:
