Like these antique clown shoes from the 30s...
Now what would I do with them?
Wear them with my goucho pants?
I'd be tempted.
Clown about in them?
Perhaps my goof-balling would be taken more seriously and my jokes would not fall flat as they now often do. Much can be said about appearance, you know.
Or, just display them.
One can never have too many conversation pieces in one's living room.
These great folk art creations belonged to a man who was a clown with Ringling brothers back in the 1930s.
I love circus memorabilia.
Now, there are clown shoes and then there are clown shoes that have gone further. Take a look at these antique circus/vaudeville shoes...
Apparently, these may have belonged to the famous British music hall star Little Tich (Harry Relph 1867- 1928).
His most popular routine was his Big Boot dance, which involved a pair of 28-inch boots.
Shall we see Little Tich perform?
Hope you're having some laughs today!
