Ringling Bros. Circus letters

In these letters dated from the last days of the 19th Century and forward, one will find performers of all stripes seeking employment with Ringling Bros. Circus. Ringling, during these years, made gargantuan strides in popularity and success, which allowed for their historic acquisition of the fabled Barnum and Bailey Circus in 1907. It is with great pleasure that we offer readers everywhere a glimpse into the Ringling Bros. Circus as it was evolving into the “Big One.”
