Louise Brooks and Ruth St. Denis on da beach

Photo of dancers on the beach includes Louise Brooks, second from right, as part of the Denishawn Dancers in Los Angeles, CA (Library of Congress). Click to Enlarge.
Top photo is of Ruth St. Denis herself in an unsual pose. (NY Public Library )
Read about Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, what inspired their dance companies, and see more photos on bobster1985's flickr.
I love seeing photos of Louise Brooks that I had not seen before. Those were the days!
