Vintage ca. late 1910′s / early 1920′s photograph of Ziegfeld Follies showgirls the Fairbanks Twins, Madeline and Marion, in a spirited jazz age costume view. Though not actually twins, the sisters were a fixture in vaudeville, early silent film, and become featured stars in the Ziegfeld Follies and Midnight Frolic revues. (by Culver Pictures Inc., NY) / src: Grapefruit Moon Gallery
