CLOWN ALLEY: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, Red Unit (1979)

30 years ago, THIS is what circus clowning in America looked like.

I've just bought a programme for the 1947-48 season of Bertram Mills' Circus at Olympia, London. There are 13 clowns pictured!! These days, a British show is lucky to have 3!

Like a Mount Rushmore, beautiful, just beautiful and to be viewed with reverence and gratitude.
