In 1793, America's first permanent circuses opened in Philadelphia and New York City. Traveling circuses were later organized, and the need for "big tops" and circus wagons arose. As circus owners began to advertise the arrival of their shows with grand street parades, the wagon became more ornate. Gilded lettering, elaborate paintings, and decorative woodwork were gradually added - contributing to the spectacle which enticed patrons to the circus grounds.
 
U.S. #2452 is part of the popular Transportation Series. The Transportation Series contains 59 stamps with engraved designs featuring modes of transportation from the baby buggy to the racecar.
