CLOWN ALLEY: From the Circus City Diner

From the wall of the Circus City Diner in Hugo, OK comes this wall hanging that looks as though it may have been done by a local sideshow banner artist.

Featured are: Paul Jerome, Larry Cross, Albert White, Gene Lewis, Ernie Burch and Charlie Lewis.

That is Joe Lewis "clown cop" who was later married to Emmet Kellys first wife, trapeze artist, Eva Mae.

With all due respect Colonel, that's not Jojo Lewis.

Joe Lewis and Abe Goldstein were probably the best known of the "clown cops" but Charlie Lewis worked the Shrine circuit for quite a few years doing it as well.
