Before Ringling knew what the Madison Square Garden was!

A sure sign of the winter being over and that spring was about to erupt in full bloom was the traditional Madison Square Garden opening of what was then the "Greatest Show on Earth", The Barnum & Bailey Circus. Just by reading the ad you can get a pretty good idea how enormous a show it was. This ad was in the New York Times on march 22, 1908.
