Dancing, Singing, NightClubs, and 1950s Stripper Stars

Dancing, Singing, NightClubs, and 1950s Stripper Stars

Wow. What a cool series of pinup and burlesque star history!

I’m not sure if there’s much of a point to the words in these pages, but the pictures show the history of fashion and burlesque with pictures including:

  • an 1800s cartoon imagining how people would dance if women were emancipated (in their underwear)
  • Arthur Murray
  • Fred and Adele Astaire
  • Sophie Tucker
  • Helen Morgan
  • Texas Guinan
  • Sally Rand doing the fan fance
  • Lena Horne
  • Joanne Gilbert
  • Dardy Orlando (sister of Lili St. Cyr) standing in front of Minksy’s Rialto
  • Burlesque Queens Ann Corio, Georgia Southern, and Margie Hart
  • a series of pictures of Sylvia McKaye seductively stripping from a show girl outfit to just  a g string
  • Jenny Lind
  • opera singer Mary Garden
  • Rise Stevens

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
