Thanks so much Betty! Love these :) They look like they were having such a great time :) I can't believe these are actually here!!!!

I was so excited to find the large rotogravure page (last pic) since it's of Betty's great aunt Margaret Morris and May Leslie in costume for the Midnight Frolic of 1916 putting on a little outdoor display in Long Island!

When I sent it to Betty she said she had photos from it that she didn't know who or what they were of or from and was thrilled to get the rotogravure. She sent me these scans of the original photos from the shoot today!

The third pic of May Leslie is an outtake that didn't make it into the Rotogravure for obvious reasons :) It's a great shot of her clowning around with her eyes rolled back!

Thanks a million for these priceless shots, Betty!!! Fantastic!!!

    Jane...I'm going to get the photo I have of May Leslie scanned today. It was taken during the same photo shoot and is very funny. She was clowning around for the camera and obviously having a good time. It's nice to know they had time for fun.

    Just got them Betty and they're fantastic, thank you so much!!!! The one with May fooling around is too much :smile: Will do them asap and get them up though I said I wasn't going to post and put them with this shoot since they're the original photos for it. How wonderful to have them!!!! I love it!!!!!!

    Thanks so much, Betty :smile:
