  1. Well, that was very nice. All of it! The girl with the monocle was extra lovely. Thanks for curating this great selection of images.

    1. Thank you, dear! FYI, I'm pretty sure that girl was actually a post "Little Lord Fauntleroy" boy; little boys had to suffer long curls for quite some time after that book came out. : )

  2. That's a lovely photo of Fanny Brice. Thanks to you, I just finished listening to her singing "I'd rather be blue."
    I had forgotten what a cool song that is!

  3. Stephilius, what a great collection of wonderful art and photographs. So much beauty and inspiration in this post. Thank you.
