      Surely a panoramic photo of twenty nine women (flappers all) in a line surrounded by crowd in front of a dance hall is a bit unusual? I think the sign just says "Dancing".

      Is it in Vegas?
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      Is it by E. O. Goldbeck?
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      "Goldbeck used a Cirkut camera that revolved on a tripod while the film advanced at the same speed. He created images as large as 10 by 60 inches. All of his images were contact printed - no enlargements were made. He created the National Photo Service in 1921, the first and only independent news- photograph supplier headquartered in Texas."

      The camera possibly used is described here:

      There's a demonstration on youtube here:

      I just had another look at the bottom right hand corner for the signature. Not the clearest photo but I'd say it looks something like the E.O. Goldbeck S.A. (San Antonio) Texas mark I've seen on others.

      the cards the women have are probably their dance cards.

      thanks everyone but the corner does say wenver 1853 it is not mine. i copied it from the video they made for the estate sale

      I've been looking for this photo for a few years. I first saw it in a women's restroom in a restaurant, the wait staff said the owner purchased it at homegoods, but I have had no success in finding it. I think these ladies were going into the dance hall in the background for a good time. Unfortunately, someone stole it from the restroom which is a sad commentary in itself. pattiray, is photo shown, the only one you have of this picture? Do you have one straight on? Hope to hear from you.
      ANYONE ELSE WITH ANY INFO ON THIS PICTURE? Thanks

      I found one at an antique barn in Stratham NH

      I bought this print at an auction. The back of mine says beauty pageant.
    12. vintagefan100, 7 years ago
      I love this print! Found mine at a garage sale (previously purchased from Marshalls). A swimsuit version from this same era had just sold at the sale. I'd love to find this print!

      I found a copy of this photo, mounted on wood, put out to be thrown away in the garbage along with many other things apparently belonging to someone who had died. My copy has a Marshall's label on the back. It's a photo that rewards study. I just noticed that the girl at the far left is holding a pennant that appears to say BEST MAID. Did she win a dance competition?

      MYSTERY SOLVED. My wife discovered <a href="https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/panoramic-photo-wood-38-x-1900s-dance-1978030192">this information</a> on the photo after I had tried and failed to do so because I was reading the name at the far lower right as "Wenver" instead of Weaver.

      Well done CLIF910 ..... any idea of what uniform those guys are wearing ????
    16. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 months ago
      I think those are three L.A. police uniforms or am I wrong ???
