Dragon Ladies – Snapshots of Stripteasers from the 1980s at Downtown Los Angeles Venues

The following images are from a collection of over one thousand 35mm negatives made in 1984 by an amateur photographer known only as “B. Mason.” They were subsequently abandoned, and later discovered in an Echo Park garage in 2005, in a stack of withered, moldy envelopes from different one-hour photo labs.


Hidden inside those envelopes was an encyclopedic collection of exotic dancers from the 1980s at several downtown Los Angeles venues: The Dragon Lady, The Cameo and The Last Call.
