Freckles the Clown at Ford City Shopping Center!

Chicago, Illinois - 1969

Above is a great vintage autographed photo that was handed out to kids at the Ford City Shopping Center during a 1969 public appearance by popular '60s Chicago TV kid show host, "Freckles the Clown" (Bill Jackson), along with his sidekick, "Dirty Dragon". These were the days when local TV hosts and personalities ruled the world, and would often make publicity visits to the local malls, shopping centers, and grocery stores to meet with fans.
