Grand Championnat

Candido Aragonez de Faria(1849-1911)
Grand Championnat wrestling poster. Research has turned up nothing regarding this Faria poster. I think this sort of poster was printed in advance and travelled ahead of the show, where local printers would add time , date and location information.



signed: Schenkel (?-?)
Poster for the opening of “Sportpaleis Antewerpen” in Antwerp Belgium. When it opened in 1933, it was the largest indoor arena in Europe. Sportpaleis is still used… Billboard Magazine lists it as the second most visited event hall int the world, only Madison Square Garden has had more visitors.
