Introducing…Elsie Clark, Vaudevillian Extraordinaire!

I told you in the latest Paper Lantern Writers Q&A that I inherited the scrapbooks, photographs, recordings, and so much more belonging to vaudevillian and Okeh recording artist Elsie Clark.

So here’s the proof. These are just a few photos of Elsie’s career in vaudeville, but I think you get the picture…

Publicity Photo #1 – A Study in Sepia


Publicity photo #2 – Same day, same dress, but a Profile in Color

Finis for now, folks!
