A Circus Wedding

A Circus Wedding

Original caption: Hailing the Clown Prince and His Bride. New York, New York: The whole fraternity of clowns at the circus pooled their talents today to fete Emmet Kelly, 56, sad-faced dean of funsters, and his bride, the 22-year-old blonde German acrobat Elveira Gebhardt, who were married today. Their party took the form of a mock ceremony, with one member of the brotherhood handing Emmet a ball and chain, his lovely bride wielding a rolling pin over his head and carrying a washboard, while the rest cheer and applaud them. Party took place at Madison Square Garden while the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus was on. April 21, 1955.
