Last days of Vaudeville

Last days of Vaudeville
Originally uploaded by tolkien4me

This is a picture of Thelma Rose at her last day on the job at the Orpheum Vaudeville Theater in the Bowery. Moving pictures were becoming the rage and patrons of the Orpheum were awfully rowdy. Thelma Rose just dodged the tomatoes being thrown at the stage. The boxing twins known as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum were dejected at the lack of respect and joined a carnival in Rhode Island.
Thelma Rose became a Coca Cola model in magazines and later a silent film star.
