In my last post I mentioned Paris and quite by chance, I came across this lovely semi-coloured vintage postcard from Paris. It shows a dancer with a Folies Bergères costume, dating back to circa 1900.
The picture was taken by Walery, a French photographer who lived betwee 1863-1935. This box costume has the dancer wearing a box attached to her outfit - perhaps it was placed strategically to encourage Folies Bergères patrons to throw in their tips or to drop their payments for the popcorn!!?
