look back & happy goodbye to Ringling Bros Circus
This post was inspired by the great news that Ringling is finally going out of business!
The Washington Coliseum (the site of the city's REI), 3rd & M Sts NE, was the venue for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1968. The ad above is from the Evening Star, 11 February 1968.
Who remembers attending the circus? Were there protests against the circus due to their use of animals?
