Is there a photo credit list anywhere in the book? Towsen had to get them from somewhere. And chances are good that they're already in the public domain. You might also check the U.S. Copyright Office to see if the photos were registered there or, if the clowns were associated with a particular circus, with the headquarters of that circus.
