Mystery Dancer 1916     6:30 AM
by David for group historicalziegfeld Dec 14, 2010

Who is this? The shoot was performed by Ira L. Hill, New York's major Society photographer during the 1910s. A name is penciled in on one of the images that reads I think "N Payne." Yet the costumes look like they are heavily influenced by the Bakst costumes of the Ballet Russe. The Russian ballet visited NY in 1916. I've done a cursory search of the newspapers for 1916--the date stamped on the back of all the images, and have not discovered an N Payne. Suggestions?
