Time Machine

Many pictures on Shorpy have made me wish I had a time machine. This picture has me building one.

Vital Info

Thanks, Mr. Siegel, for your increasingly vital reports for the Office of War Information.

Looking out my back door

Has anyone else noticed it's dark outside, the windows are open, the blinds are up, and they're doing THIS?

Avert those eyes

A gentleman would not have known that was the nine of spades. I am shocked.

Interested Observer

I'm a father and a grandfather but as a U.S. Marine many years ago got into saloons and bawdy houses on three continents. I'm OK with anything that goes on as somebody who has seen much but two recent photos with this trio tells me that the lady in the middle is way too interested with the lady on the left.

Talent

She must suck. At cards.

I hope this series has several more shots.

Okay

These photos are all scenes from a play titled "Waiting for Bettie Page."
