Today’s Top 5

Dig Those Boots

Just proves that "everything old is new again." They would be absolutely "IN" today.

Flashing some jewels

It looks like she wanted the photographer to show off her ring by only wearing one glove. Did Michael jackson "borrow" this style?


Notice how she took off her left glove to show off that rock.

Hussy fit

A welcoming smile, a well turned ankle and a generous view of shin! Just a little too provocative, Mr. Shorpy. I hope this was a mistake on your part and you will return to images of exploited blackened coal miners, dung covered streets and well known celebrities now forgotten.


Forget the boots, I want that deck chair for my porch!!

Boot Time

I used to think it took my computer a long time to boot up!

Vera de Lutse (1879-?)

The Russian-born soprano Vera de Lutse (or Luze), who performed in Italy as Vera de Luza, would have been 36 in 1915.

And, yes, my wife would kill for those boots.

Life is too short

Life is too short to tie those boots. Those are some very long boot laces.

Let's party!

She looks like she'd be a lot of fun.

High fashion

You`ve gotta love the boots. Very chic.

Comfort be damned

I'd wear those fabulous boots on a cruise ship any day!

Seriously -

I could NOT relax in those shoes!
