"Wild Heart"

Singly and collectively. Each and every one a Wild Heart--like Stevie and like ME!!

What they had in mind

Those engaging in such frolics in the park were often thinking of one Isadora Duncan, although the expressions we see on these proto-hippies suggest some are unclear on the concept.

At any rate, here is possibly the only surviving footage of Isadora doing her thing at a garden party at the time of her greatest fame. The movie clip seems silly, but a quick google will return a number of Isadora stills that suggest something far more impressive.


Those are some of the prettiest girls I've ever seen on Shorpy!

Ah, the days

of the cheesecloth shift.
