As the English circus collapsed, the big American companies maintained the prestige of the circus. In 1871, it existed in the States-United 22 big circuses traveling, at the shadow of which that of Phineas Barnum who launched an operation of an unparalleled scale by producing a four-masted tent that was later extended to six. This required rail transport with 21 wagons.
Barnum played an important role in developing advertising displays and in the art of media effects (parade, manipulations, deceptions). The circus had 500 horses. After a terrible competition with Bailey for supremacy, Barnum came to associate with James Bailey, who, in fact, ran the company from 1881 to 1906.
After Barnum died in 1891, Bailey remained alone and undertook in 1897 a great five-year European tour. It was a real revolution in the circus world. The installation of the long tent of 200 meters and the rigorous organization of this true traveling city of a thousand people was a model of efficiency.
The first performance in France, in Paris, in 1901, took place in the presence of the family of the President of the Republic, the President of the Council, and ten ministers. Ringling Brothers then took advantage of Barnum's absence in the United States.
