Circus Busch was founded in 1891 by Paul Vinzenz Theodor Busch and became one of the leading European circuses in the world. Starting out with strong men acts, over time more acts were added including animal acts and many novelty acts. By 1895 they put up a permanent building in the Bahnhof Börse in Berlin.
They later also had permanent locations in Vienna, Hamburg and other parts of Europe. 
In 1937, the Circus Busch building in Berlin was demolished. However, Circus Busch as a tent show would continue and still exists today as the Circus Busch-Roland.
There are a number of Houdini Circus Busch posters including one with Houdini with German Policemen and a Water Torture poster.
