Of course, the girl would be deemed horrendously fat by Ralph Lauren ...
An interesting article, thanks.

Thanks for the post, Mike & Eolake.

Another victim of the crusade against pictorialism (among other historical factors)? The official site was disappointing in that there are few photos and the youtube video it links to has been taken down.

So, on this lazy Sunday, I tried the Lib. of Congress site, but the A.C. Johnston collection has not been digitized for the web. [Did, however find another photographer named Johnston: Frances Benjamin Johnston (1864-1952) http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/coll/131.html whose work can be seen on line.]

But there is a rather exhaustive and scholarly effort to identify Ziegfeld Girls here:

which links to her own large collection of mostly ACJ photos:

http://ziegfeldgrrl.multiply.com/photos

as well as other collections, on line and off.

I wasn't sure if those sites would hold up to a mob visitation via T.O.P. publicity, but if the photo you posted is attributed anywhere, I bet it would be there or at one of her resources.

Lots of his photo's on Google images. Johnston produced some Beautiful photographs of women.
Thanks again for rolling back the clock of great photographers.

Wow, incredibly sexy woman and photograph.

Look at her hands, gorgeous repetition.
