Victorian-era Clown

Charlie Keith was a famous English clown and circus owner. The Victoria & Albert Museum credits this picture as being from 1840, but seeing as Keith lived from 1836-1895, I’m not sure how that could be the case!

It just goes to show that you can’t believe anything – not even one of the world’s most famous museums!
