Did your aunt spend her youth doing acrobatics mid-air on a ’30s vaudeville stage or flouncing feathers in a 20’s German cabaret? Was your granddad in a circus troupe? Are you in a possession of a rare promotional Moulin Rouge photograph? We’ve been digging through portraits of these glamorous dancers, saucy damsels in tinsel, and troupes of sisters, and we’re a little jealous. So, if your family album is quite a bit more exciting than average, head to the Vintage Vaudeville & Burlesque Images Flickr pool or our comment section and brag. Here are a few highlights.
