Ringling Brothers Circus and Barnum & Bailey Circus were famous and travelled the United States for many years.
Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth, a circus created by P. T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey merged with the Ringling Brothers in 1919.

The Great Depression hit the Circus hard and struggled to stay in business during the 1930’s.
Travel restrictions were imposed throughout the USA during WW II and President Roosevelt granted a relaxation of the rules so that the Circus could operate using the national rail network in 1942. A new marketing poster depicting a Threatening Circus Tiger was also released that year.
