The bill at a local drag club. Ideally I'd have liked a little more DOF to keep all of the text perfectly sharp but the light was so poor I was obliged to keep the aperture wide open.

What a spot! It looks like a Victorian poster - until you spot the www. link. Well caught. Bruce (and a Happy New Year)

Thank you Bruce. I'm glad you noticed the Victorian look, that's what I was aiming for (hence the sepia). All the best for the new year - maybe that bestseller is on the way Smile

Watcha Michael,
yes, clever bit of deception, I didn't think Victorian, more early 20c American burlesque, I believe Minskys was a burlesque 'establishment' Smile

Thanks for comments on the old stuff I dug out, I've got loads of it, earlier stuff.
Girl with the scarf, now I think on it, that may have been Clair's sister Mary. There are zillions of stories about my friends, but, my memory isn't good enough to tell them true, also, they could pop up here sometime and I don't want to be a gossip monger:-0) One I remember, Linda went on cruise ships doing a strong woman act, she was a lovely girl, life and soul, and, she was strong, one Christmas she said, 'Mick, where's my Christmas kiss?' she picked me up one handed up to lips height for itSmile I'm a big bloke ex rugby player, no lightweight.

watcha Michael,
yes: Wikipedia

Minsky's Burlesque refers to the brand of burlesque presented by the four Minsky brothers: Abe Minsky (1878-?); Billy Minsky (1887-?); Herbert Minsky (1892-?); and Morton Minsky (1902-1987). They started in 1912 and ended in 1937 in New York City. Although the shows were declared obscene and outlawed, they were rather tame by modern standards.

Thank you Ann.

Mick, some people leave comments, you leave essays Smile Thanks for the info, much appreciated. The name "Minskys" has been niggling away since I took this pic and reading your comments led me to this film which I saw on the telly many years ago (when I was too young to be watching such films). Thanks again.
