Oh my goodness that is such a marvelous photo of the sisters Gish. New to me as well. Thanks for sharing Kitty!

I haven't seen every photo in this thread, so do forgive me if I post a repeat of a particular one. I have a few that I'd love to share, starting with this one of a personal favorite of mine, Clara Bow:

Image

I love it. Harkens back to her tomboy days when she lived in the Brooklyn tenements.
Oh, it is so NICE to see you, Betty Lou!! How have you been?

That is definitely an unusual photo. I've never seen it before. Thanks for sharing. ☺️
I have been doing very well this whole time! I'm very glad to be back.

Yep, Clara's looking tough in this one! I wanna say that this was taken in... 1925?

I can't seem to find very many photographs of Gladys Leslie.

I've actually not heard of her! She was adorable.

I always loved this one of Clara. Looks like 1923 or 1924?

It looks like a pocket watch. :lol: I bet it wasn't comfortable!

Gladys Leslie, Vitagraph Star (as indicated by the sheetmusic cover).

Image

We'd see this photograph used as the model for this cover of Motion Picture in 1919.
