The clowns depicted in this mural include Michael "Coco" Polakovs, Emmett Kelly, Paul Jung, Felix Adler, Harry Dann, Bobby Kay, Lou Jacobs, Charlie Chaplin, Red Skelton and Otto Griebling.

All inducted into the International Clown Hall of Fame.

But the International Clown Hall of Fame didn't start inducting people until 1989 and this photo is from 1967.

Joey the Clown had a good eye for talent!

I forgot to mention Marcel Marceau and Ernie "Blinko" Burch as well.

Quite a lineup!
