Alas! Alack! This set of prints will be removed from my Society 6 store one week from today.

(Okay. In all truth, the hugging monsters might stick around. But the others? Poof! Gone.)

Today, my darling Trav S.D. posted a blog about vaudevillian George Mann, of the team Barto & Mann. In addition to being a dancer and comedian, Mann also had a second life as a photographer. You can see his incredible archive here.
Mann also shot 16mm film footage, including this extraordinary clip of Josephine Baker performing at the Casino de Paris in 1931. I can’t embed it, but I posted a screenshot above and you can watch it here. The youtube channel is owned by Mann’s son and there are lots of other fascinating clips.

"Oh, you young people act like old men. You have no fun."

— The last words of Josephine Baker, an American dancer, singer, and actress, said after trying to seduce a man several decades younger than her. She died of a stroke. (via lastdaylastwords)
