The Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus is an American based circus company which ended up being formed as a merger between a circus company formed by James Anthony and Barnum and Circus also known as Ringling Brothers Circus. Following the merger, one of the Ringling brothers suggested that instead of organizing the circus in portable tents, it should take place in places like sports stadiums that already have sitting capacity and thus can provide better sitting arrangements to spectators.
The long history of the circus dates back to Dan Castello who was eager to set up his own circus company for which he wanted Barnum to lend not only his name but also financial backing so that the circus could begin without further delay. Barnum agreed with Castello and as a result P.T. Barnum’s “Greatest Show on Earth” was organized. On the other side, Bailey along with James. E. Cooper joined hands to set up a circus business which soon became one of the top rivals of Barnum. This competition was the result of Columbia’s birth which was said to be the first birth of an elephant in the United States. This baby elephant was born to Babe and Mandarin and several people were eager to see Columbia and as a result of this, Bailey’s sales went up. Barnum, after all this, decided to buy Columbia and eventually agreed to arrange a combined show in the late 1880s. Barnum & Bailey Circus shows, as it was named at that time, turned out to be successful as people liked the idea.
The world’s largest elephant Jumbo was introduced to the World and he gave character to the circus. Unfortunately, Barnum didn't last long and passed away after which Bailey purchased the circus from Barnum's widow. Afterward, the operations of both circuses were merged into one. After this merger, the circus extended itself beyond the boundaries of the United States and entered into Europe. Five out of the seven Ringling brothers had been in the circus business from the 1880s and at the time when Barnum and Bailey were organizing shows in Europe, Ringling brothers were arranging circuses in various towns by moving in the form of animal drawn caravans. These humble caravans were soon able to move by train which became the source to raise the Ringling Brothers name as the largest amusement enterprise of this era.
Upon entering Europe, Barnum & Bailey ended up propelled the Ringling Brothers to expand themselves to the eastern seaboard. Realizing the immense competition, Bailey went to the Rockies for the first time to organize a "Super Grand Show." However, Bailey didn’t have the chance to manage circus’s operation any more as he got expired after which company was purchased by Rivaling Brothers. The circus had to pass through several trying times especially in the Great Depression when the economy was quite cruel for every company in the business. John Nicholas who was nephew of the Ringling Brothers proved to be great talent at that time as he successfully managed the company in difficult times as a result of which Ringling Bros. stayed in business. President Roosevelt also provided the Circus special favors to help it out of depression.
The identity of the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus has become the train and they currently posses and maintain two circus trains each of which represents two shows of different themes. One is called the Blue Tour Train and other is called the Red Tour Train and both of them are fixed to visit major cities of the world. According to the management of the circus, it’s of utmost importance to give the audience exposure to captive animals because it enables them to make public awareness of animal needs.
