I am looking for information about the Gran Circo Keller. The only things I know about this circus is that it appeared in Concepcion Chile in the early 1900s and it includee a celebrated Cuban lion tamer named Isidoro Ortega. There is a very large poster of this Circus in Red Wing MN which piqued my curiosity and I found a small picture card featuring Isodoro on a collecting site from Spain. The appearance in Concepcion Chile is from a web site of remeniscences about Concepcion. The poster was printed in France and the style is quite satyrical. For instance the elephant appears to be standing on it’s trunk and other acts are racing around chaotically behind the imposing figure of Captain Keller. Keller looks a lot like Wild Bill Hickok. Would I be likely to find information if I searched through the venue of the poster printer? It is a French company. Any information or pointers would be appreciated.
