Did you know? Who is the Coney Island face?

The grinning clown face featured on the shirt is known as “Tillie”: The name Tillie is a nod to George C. Tilyou, the owner of Steeplechase Park in Coney Island, NY

Do you have any facts on this? Is this the real name or was is something else?
Let me know!
