The Circus category has been subdivided. Along with a general folder, you will find Circus – Acrobats, Circus – Clowns, and Circus – Posters & Advertisements. Please enjoy the below selections from the Clowns folder, which has 42 items packed clownishly into one folder. They run the gamut, from the manic and frightening, to the heartbroken and cabbage-coddling.
