Twenties Tuesday: Josephine Baker, Bye Bye Blackbird and Louise Brooks

Welcome to my first "Twenties Tuesday." I plan to reserve Tuesdays for sharing intriguing finds from the 1920's.

I think you'll enjoy this wonderful video, found on moonkaf's channel on YouTube. (Thanks moonkaf!)

Josephine Baker (1906-1975) sings the 1920's hit Bye Bye Blackbird.
The video features film clips of the amazing silent film star Louise Brooks (1906-1985).

If you haven't yet met the beautiful Louise in your vintage film travels, I think you're going to fall in love with her...


  1. you are so good at conjuring up nostalgia!

    i think part of the reason i started archive dives was because i find value in the past -- the way things were, the things we've done. not to live in the past or avoid the present, but i think knowing where we've been helps everything else make more sense. that, and darnit, they had *style* back then! :)

    have a great weekend, thanks for sharing!

    I was a big fan of Louise Brooks, but must admit I'd never seen a video of her :0
    Loved it!
    Happy Weekend to ya
