5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book with great photos! 3 July 2007
By Angie2 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own several of these paperback books (called: IMAGES OF AMERICA). These compact books never disappoint me. This company is still producing these wonderful books today ,and every few months, the company adds to the various IMAGES OF AMERICA themes.

I bought this book because I wanted a "general" photo book showing photos of the most well-known of the Vaudeville performers, especially those from New york.
This book did not disappoint. Under each photo, there is also a brief description of the actor-performer.

(NOTE: There are no side-show performers in this book. This book is mostly about singers and actors/actresses from the early days of Vaudeville in NEW YORK).

Each chapter also gives a brief description of the Era of Vaudeville. Very interesting information.

The price for these small IMAGES OF AMERICA paperbacks are always low ($) and affordable. For me, they are worthwhile to own in any Library.

A scrapbook of photos of vaudeville entertainers, but very little information about the theatres, history or lifestyle.
Inexpensive book or I would have returned it.
