Found on EBay -- A Night on the Town, 1944

Nightclub photos, 1944  

Nightclub Photos, 1944

A lot of seven souvenir nightclub photos, all from 1944, has been listed on EBay. These folks clearly got around: Earl Carroll's, the Florentine Gardens, the Cocoanut Grove, plus several clubs in San Francisco.

Notice the woman at left has a flower in her hair--and no, she's not Elizabeth Short! For that matter, the woman on the right has done the same thing. My point is that for a time in the mid-1940s, this was quite fashionable and that Elizabeth Short--the Black Dahlia--was doing nothing unusual in pinning flowers in her hair.

Bidding on this lot of photos starts at $19.99. Yes, I'm tempted--don't you love the artwork on the photo holder from the Cocoanut Grove?-- but I already have more of these than I need.

Believe it or not i bought a Florentine Gardens photo of this gal (and several of her cohorts) from this seller, must have been last summer. Wish she'd been selling this lot then.

If i recall correctly the folder has something about a Lt. Marshall and Commander of 7th Fleet.
