That is a photo of world famous hobo clown "Weary Willy", Emmitt Kelly
and Emmitt Kelly Jr. of Wringling Brothers Barnum and Baily circus.
One of the best bits was that he would coax a young boy in the audience to share some popcorn. Emmitt would take the box, extract a single piece of popcorn, display it to the audience with marvel and great reverence. Then he would give the boy the single piece of popcorn and walk off with the box as the crowd roared. (of course he returned the box of popcorn to the boy).
I am a great fan.... and I like the irony of a sad clown, much like how many of us may seem very happy to others, but may not be.
btw, thank-you Tracy for the compliment
