I have a humongous picture collection on my computer, and my boyfriend has convinced me that I should start sharing some of it on my blog. Since I’ve never intended to show any of the pictures until now, I never bothered remembering most of their sources. Because of this I’ve been a bit hesitant showing them, since I know some people don’t like their scans being showed without credit. Personally I encourage the sharing of my own scans and don’t see the need for credit, but if anyone owns any of these photos and want me to remove them or credit them, please let me know!
The first theme will be glamorous strippers and showgirls!
Starting with my favourite burlesque dancer, Lily St. Cyr!
This is so great. I wish there was a video of this routine.
Evelyn West, I love her outfit.
Gypsy Rose Lee, in my favourite costume of hers.
Trudy Wayne. This is so very beautiful and glamorous to me.
A really great photo of Tempest Storm.
Sherry Britton, beautiful!
Lee Sharon, amazing outfit and jewellery.

These are probably not actual showgirls, but it’s a great picture!
If you recognize any of the following girls, I’d love to know who they are!
This is so beautiful, note the clam shell!
Just an amazing picture, gorgeous!
If you want to learn more about some of these girls, I highly recommend the book Pretty Things by Liz Goldwyn.
