Unknown Group of Circus Performers

Unknown Group of Circus Performers

Group in front of the State Theatre in Chicago.

The people in front of this theatre are unknown. They may have something to do with the circus (Al Barnes' Circus, John Robinson's Circus, or Sells-Floto Circus).

It appears he may have a hobo clown makeup on and is standing beside the woman. This may be the father of my dear friend who has no know pics. He worked for John Robinson circus from approx 1926 and later. Any info you can provide we would be greatful.
