Silly poses? We can do that.
The photo below is one of the Genealogical Society of Victoria's collection on Flickr. We don't know who the girls are or even where they are but we think it's Victoria, possibly Melbourne. And in the context of other photos in the album it was taken in about 1930. Sepia doesn't given us an indication of colour but I imagine the costumes were very colourful. They have a harlequin look with sailor-like hats. A dance troupe or a one-off entertainment?

The photo was on a blog but only has the caption 'prohibition'
so I imagine it was taken in America.
The dancer second from the right shows real style.
|Another silly pose. One from my own collection of found photos.|

'Mr Paxton', by an unknown Melbourne photographer.
I suggest you dance on over to Sepia Saturday to see what others have made of the theme this week.
