The King of Batons is panhandling with his old hound dog. He’s ready to either berate passersby or look forlorn, as the situation calls for.
A worried-looking tramp clown stands with his hat out to collect money, accompanied by a dog.
The clown has a white face with black stubble and a red-painted nose. He is bald on top and his red hair sticks out on the sides of his head. His eyebrows are raised. He wears a blue shirt and brown tweed pants with a green patch on the knee, held up with rope for a belt. Over this, he has a long yellow and orange checked coat with green lapels and a red flower on the breast. One of his red and white Oxford shoes is untied, the other has no laces at all. He stands leaning on a long green staff in his right hand, with his left foot up on a blue crate and his left hand on his hip. On the ground in front of the crate, there is a purple bowler hat with some money in it. A large white hound dog with blue spots sits next to the crate, looking at the viewer.
