In my last post I mentioned Paris and quite by chance, I came across this lovely semi-coloured vintage postcard from Paris. It shows a dancer with a Folies Bergères costume, dating back to circa 1900.
The picture was taken by Walery, a French photographer who lived betwee 1863-1935. This box costume has the dancer wearing a box attached to her outfit - perhaps it was placed strategically to encourage Folies Bergères patrons to throw in their tips or to drop their payments for the popcorn!!?
Great blog, enjoyed the wonderful images and learned something new about Mucha. Keep it coming!
