Teddy Girls

Some of these photos remind me of the occasion that Pretty Lady attended a Halloween party in the Castro, dressed as Humphrey Bogart. Her costume was greeted with such impassioned, drunken approval by the boyfriend of a friend of hers, that she suspects it had something to do with the subsequent demise of that particular friendship. Some women do not handle their competitive instincts at all honestly.

Say, is this a Diane Arbus photo? It seems a little sane for her work, but it does have the feel.

No, click on the link in the title! These were taken in England after the war. I found them deeply haunting.

Wow...you've opened up a whole new era. Post-war England is really terra incognita
for me. I had not even heard the term "Teddy Girl".
