Received last night from a Mr. John Allen...
I first met Frosty In 1968 when he was performing in Orlando Florida with Ringling Bros. We had 1st row center ring seats that night and my oldest daughter Mandy was about a year and a half old. He came over and picked her up taking her into the center ring. I am sending the photo I took of them that night.
The interesting part of the story is that sometime in the mid 90s when he was in Miami I took a larger photo that I had and when I asked one of the other clowns about him he immediately went and brought him over. I showed him the photo and he remembered the exact time and place that it was taken. This has been a cherished possession since that time.
I grew up as a kid going to the circus every year and really miss the old time performances. If you can, pass a hello along for me.

Mr. Allen, thank you for sharing your wonderful memories and for providing us with this very rare photo of Frosty wearing gloves! ; )
