CLOWN ALLEY: Felix Adler and Charlie Smith (circa 1920s)

Felix Adler and Charlie Smith outside the Big Top of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. I don't have a date for this one but judging from Felix's wig and painted nose I'm going to guess that this is from the 1920s or very early 30s.

I was lookin' for info on this (tiresome?) quote,

"Ethical religion can be real only to those who are engaged in ceaseless efforts at moral improvement. By moving upward we acquire faith in an upward movement, without limit. - Felix Adler"

and look what I found instead! GLEE!

Thank you SO much!
