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.

I’ve been drawing from frozen dvd images - something I used to do a lot of, but haven’t in a long time. From Queen Margot.
