Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus was an American traveling circus company billed as The Greatest Show on Earth.
It and its predecessor shows ran from 1871 to 2017. Known as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows, the circus started in 1919 when the Barnum & Bailey’s Greatest Show on Earth, a circus created by P. T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey, was merged with the Ringling Bros World’s Greatest Shows. Solis Aerial Acrobat followed a great circus tradition.

The Ringling brothers had purchased Barnum & Bailey Ltd following Bailey’s death in 1906, but ran the circuses separately until they were merged in 1919.
The circus suffered during the 1930s due to the Great Depression, but managed to stay in business.
After John Nicholas Ringling’s death, his nephew, John Ringling North, managed the indebted circus twice, the first from 1937 to 1943. Special dispensation was given to the circus by President Roosevelt to use the rails to operate in 1942, in spite of travel restrictions imposed as a result of World War II.
Many of the most famous images from the circus that were published in magazine and posters were captured by American Photographer Maxwell Frederic Coplan, who travelled the world with the circus, capturing its beauty as well as its harsh realities. (Wikipedia)
