We all remember how exciting it was to see the circus, but these days there are fewer and fewer chances to see them. Once a staple of recreation in the U.S., traveling circuses were a colorful attraction and each one had its own unique style. We found some incredible photos snapped by photographer, Charles Weever Cushman, from a 1946 Ringling Brothers circus that show how just interesting behind-the-scenes snapshots can be. And get this – all the photographs are in stunning color. Settle in and have a look back at a truly unique time in American entertainment with us!
