lovely ladies --
google just released a ton of images from the LIFE photo archives,
many that have never before been published:
Life Magazine Images on Google
if you search for "burlesque" "pinup" "vaudeville" etc it turns up
some really delightful old gems! enjoy!
"Gypsy Rose Lee (C, Front) receiving help from Florence Gailey (L) while performing a reverse strip-tease act." Click the photo for more information.
I'm sorry I haven't been posting for myself! This is the longest I've gone without blogging or something like it in nine years! Just wait until I get unpacked.
