CLOWN ALLEY: Ringling 1930s?

Photo courtesy of circusbutterflygurl

I'm not sure of the identity of the clown on the left (it looks like it may be one of the Hanlons) but the clown on the right is none other than the "King of Clowns" (years before Budweiser was "The King of Beers", Elvis was "The King of Rock & Roll" or Michael Jackson was the "King of Pop") himself, Felix Adler.

Felix seems to be paying homage to Slivers Oakley here with his choice of hats in this photo which looks to have been taken on Ringling in the 1930s.
