The earliest items here are a photo dated 1926 and a flyer from 1928, and the latest seems to be 1972 on a large poster from Girvan. Working for the most part as Clown Bobby and Evelyn, His real name was Robert Squire, hers was Evelyn Wrensted. The couple performed across the country at fetes, fairs, concert parties and on the music hall and end of pier circuit for almost fifty years.
