Vintage American Vaudeville Performer – 41 Old Portrait Photos Show Members of the Lovejoy Dancers in the 1930s

Before joining the Marcy Brothers act, Beatrice was a member of the Lovejoy Dancers. She was not a beautiful, but also a talented girl. This set was provided by her family that show members of this dancing group in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

A special thank to Beatrice's family.
