How did the Bailey family get all that money, you may be asking? Through a traveling circus business! In fact, the original Bailey's traveling circus was later incorporated into the modern Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. George Bailey famously designed a traveling hippopotamus tank that could be used to transport the circus' prized hippo to shows in different American towns.
