These were taken in '78/79- a looong time ago. Still think the whiteface makeup was pretty classy.

Always a beautiful look. I miss the passing of the whiteface. You also had a great costume. Very classical. In those days the clowns seemed to be more complete. Everything fit in opne package. Mitch freddes
