This photoshoot from 1937 shows the contrast in the ‘undressing’ style of former Burlesque stripper, June St. Clair, as compared to a ‘typical wife’, who doesn’t disrobe with quite the same, erm, allure. The photos were by Peter Stackpole and done for the Allen Gilbert School of Undressing. [via How to be a Retronaut]
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
