Portraits: Shoe

Oddball snapshot of woman posing upside down on grass in dance move, circa 1940s Los Angeles.

“In L.A. soon” (c 1940s)

Part of an album acquired yesterday originally spotted by John Taylor, who has an eagle eye for all sorts of photographic tributaries. The inscription on the back is nice too. It reads: “This is one of the dances June will do on the stage in L.A. soon. June, 142nd St, Haw.”

Thanks to Leonard Lightfoot for uncovering another great image. This has to be one of my all-time favorites. As I have mentioned before a time or two on here, there truly is just nothing like a great snapshot.
