This photo pre-dates 1923 and was taken in an amusement park in Charleston, WV.
"Bring in the clowns" great old picturemaybe this is the picture that spawned the song
--Scary clowns of yesterday will not make fear go away.--It was a lean year for Uncle Sam.--Can you really call it an amusement park when even the clowns are not amused?
I just wanted to point out the kid being held by the shoulders by the clown toward the right. I know there's a caption for them, but the one that comes to mind is just dreadful.
The day that the circus left town - without us:(
I think they've just been told they are all sacked for not smiling!Love the one at the back with the big cigar!!
My mind is on a go slow today, so I cannot think of a caption.
Looks a lot like my class reunion.
How 'bout...."America's Got Talent Contestants Prepare for New 2009 Season"Or“Angry Protestors Gather At Local Health Care Town Hall Meeting”And finally“Cirque du Soleil Falls On Hard Times As World’s Economic Crisis Worsens”
I can't think of a caption.I really like Alan G's captions, all would fit. I have noticed in a lot of old pictures people are not smiling for looking very happy.
I do not like clowns.
"Our friendly customer service team is available to assist you 24/7.""Border Patrol rounds up illegal aliens; return them to Canada.""Lips that touch liquor will never touch ours!"
I am sorry, but I could never top Alan G.'s comments'. Besides, I am still on my first morning cup of coffee. Perhaps I will try again after the caffeine hits the brain. Great idea and great old photo.
"After the family reunion, Phineas Barnum was inspired to launch his own business venture."
"Office O'Grady might have been small, but he still managed to single handedly break up the Hatfield and McCoy disturbance at the local revival."
You got a bunch in interesting and funny captions from your readers. I just think the picture is gloomy and sad.
Interesting photo. I guess, "it wasn't all good times back in the day."
Just clowning around - or not.
I was going to say...Welcome to our Special Funny Man Circus!I LOVE this picture, Judy....It is filled with as many stories as there are people...lol!
Why do I feel like I'm in a Stephen King movie?
This picture gave Michael Jackson the idea for his video THRILLER.
Hail, Hail, the gang's all here.
looks like an audition for the "Little Rascals"
Just amazing old picture, Judy! Maybe the caption... The circus arrive!
