The Roofettes (Colorized): 1923

The Roofettes (Colorized): 1923

Colorized from this Shorpy original. I have been tweaking the color on this one every now and then over the course of a couple of years. The Tiller Girls were forerunners of modern stage dancing, and the Rockettes were one of the resulting dance groups. I feel a very tenuous connection to this picture because someone I barely knew in high school danced for the Rockettes in the mid 1960s. There is a part of my brain that I call the "girl detector". Adding color to the picture really turns up the volume on the "girl detector". View full size.
