True Burlesque Burlesk Bounces Back from Tab the Pocket Picture Magazine 1952
Today on True Burlesque, a classic article on the performers from 1952. It had to be scanned before it turned to dust. The piece, which contains a wonderful photo of burlesque cipher Lily Lamont (more about Lily Lamont HERE) and a 21 year old Tempest Storm, both likely taken by Russ Meyer. Also, a rare image taken by Weegee. Without breaking the spine too much. here you go!
Also shown Lily St. Cyr, Lily "CAT" Christine (making the layout a trio of Lilys) and much more. The piece was written by Alec Wynn for Tab The Pocket Picture Magazine, November 1952. It is a shame this periodical is not available on the web...considered disposable in the 1950s, every issue is full of source material for popular culture researchers.
