I received this picture from Gibbs years ago and even then I knew he had misspelled the name but he came as close as I could have.

I saw that hat and thought this was another vintage photo of the Bronx Zoo. Nice photo of a good friend, who was also a world class unicyclist (that's right, whiz kid Jimmy, true world class) Wade Burck

And, isn't that B.J. the Clown in the background??

Wade, you forgot to mention the man's skills at rolla bolla and high wire walking and now we know that Gunther wasn't the only flashy showman !

Mr. Hall, I will give you some Lessons in "Flash" but only if YOU give Buckle's your "Figure of the Famous Clown being tossed out of a bar" It's the least I can do to thank Buckle's for posting that Photo......The Back-End Showman
