  1. great post! thanks so much for collecting so much amazing photography and artwork in one place!

  2. Incredible collection!!

    Bill Burke looks a little feminine for a Bill though.

  4. They are very evocative images, covering the fun and the celebration all the way down to the pain and the filth.

    But if I had to pick the ones I love the most, they would be:
    Gay party in the "Eldorado", Berlin, 1926 and
    Brassai, Montparnasse, Paris 1933. There was something about the tension of the inter-war years that jumps out of the screen.
