Josephine Baker Burlesque dancer photo 1

Josephine Baker ... "the Bronze Venus | Black Pearl | Creole Goddess."

Vintage Actress, Singer, Dancer: Joséphine Carson Baker. Miss Josephine was not a burlesque dancer but she did however do most of the things a burlesque dancer would do. She first danced for the public on the streets of St. Louis for nickels and dimes. She began her dancing career as a 5'-7" tall chorus girl in a all colored revue in St. Louis called 'Shuffle Along' at the young age of sixteen.

B/W Photo 1: Miss Baker is seen here in a footlight spot, nude holding a wrap in front of her, her hair is slicked back.
