If you've spent much time here at DJRD then you've probably noticed that I am a sucker for vintage color photography and could spend hours (and probably have) scouring the archives of places like LIFE magazine. Here is another batch reminiscent of the circus photos I posted many many moons ago. This time it’s New York showgirls from 1958 and they are so lovely they make me want to cry a little.
I also can’t help but wonder... where on earth did all of these costumes go?!??!
