$10 Big Top Typewriter Sale Returns! ... To Honor Ringling History as It Comes to a Close

Pittsburgh, 1956

The last days of Ringling are upon us.  Tears are falling. "The tiger presenter weeps as he ends his act with the big cats."  Hugs are warmer, longer.  Partings, more painful than before.  But while the Big Show may be  ending  for good (may we call that a provisional ending"?), Big Top Typewriter is opening for business, just in time to help preserve your fondest memories. On  sale through Sunday for only $10, here's your lifetime ticket to a Ringling show that will never end -- to a rich and rollicking journey through over fifty years of American circus history in which the Greatest Show on Earth plays a leading role.  From the last big top in Pittsburgh, 1956, to the last show in Nassau on Sunday, from John Ringling North to Irvin and Kenneth Feld, the dazzling showmanship of our nation's most celebrated circus will live on forever.  Journey with  Showbiz David on his personal adventures up and down sawdust trails, in and around big tops near and far, both as participant and observer.  Be prepared to be entertained.

 Kudos are rolling in
