Dales’ Three Ring circus was very prominent in the late 40s to early 60s. The were an offshoot of Dales Bros circus and they used three rings. The New York Herald called the three rings a drawback because “the spectator was compelled to receive more than his money’s worth; in other words, that while his head was turned in one direction he felt it was losing something good in another.”
