Photography: Burlesque – Part 7

Always a crowd pleaser – the ladies of Burlesque. Popular from the 30’s, well into the 60’s Burlesque died a slow death in it’s final years. Now that it’s ‘back’, todays girls need to take a look at their history. Great names, big hair and legs, legs, legs. These promo shots are the real deal. Thanks to the great site – Burlesk as You Like It, http://burleskateer.tumblr.com/

  1. Chris Owens is NOT a Burlesque person.. She has been and is still on Bourbon St. siinging and dancing, but NOTHING TO DO WITH BURLESQUE ….. I WAS APPEARING AT THE 500 CLUB , not in the new location that Chris bought, when she arrived in town but at Prima’s original site.. This was in the 50’s…. I love your site and at 83, do know many of the Burlesque Ladies that you display.. Thank you.. Bambi Jones…PS Chris would know me also as Bambi Brooks..
