TBT: Vaudeville Knitting


Frances White (LOC)

From the Library of Congress collection on flickr, published by Bain News Service between ca. 1915 and ca. 1920. Vaudeville star Frances White looks like she’s up to something while knitting a garter stitch garment while (perhaps) on break during her act. Slightly more about Frances here. This photo was also featured on Shorpy, a great vintage photography blog.

  1. wow.. .the hair ribbon (if that is what it is)… is as big as her head…

    1. Yes it is. That’s quite a feat to get something that big to stay where it’s placed in hair.
