Yesterday, I was fortunate to catch the last day of the exhibition Heyday: Frederick W. Glasier's American Circus, 1890-1925.
The prints and circus posters were exquisite. Glasier's photographs of Wild West Shows, Clowns, and Circus Acts were from 8 x10 glass plate negatives. I am glad this work was brought to light by Peter Kayafas of the Eakins Press Foundation. Hopefully there will be a book of this work! In the meantime you can see more of Glasier's collection at the Ringling Museum of Art.
