Ziegfeld Girls #16


Original Caption:

Heat Drives Follies Girls to Roof for Rehearsals.

New York -- Pearl Eaton, Marie Wallace and Leonore Baron, members of the Ziegfeld Follies Company, give pedestrians on the streets below a couple of eyes-full while they go through their daily rehearsals on the roof of the New Amsterdam Theater. The extreme heat made it necessary for the girls to be put through their paces in the open. (1922)

Pearl Eaton and her sister Doris were both Ziegfeld Follies girls. Pearl died in 1959 at age 60 while her sister Doris is still living and has reached the age of 105.
