GRAND MAMA YOU DIDN"T ?? Ziegfield Follies??







Florenz Ziegfield America's Greatest
Show man




******************



HE WAS " THE MAN"**
ZIEGFIELD
FOLLIES

THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL Theater 1926
ZIEGFIELD THEATER demolished now.








About 1908-1909 My grandmother was a dancer with Flora Dora
review, She did not use her real name or birth place (Ireland)














My father always sang me this song

I am talking in the 40's ::
"Tell me pretty Maiden,
Are there anymore at home like you? "


I have tried to find her in the Photo shots
on the Internet.
My Cousin said when he was small that she burned all her
letters and photos. Strange?? She was no headliner,
just a chorus girl. That had to be fun and
interesting at a young age.

My Cousin said , she was a real looker, and
use to meet Jimmy Dorsey's father in the
park and talk at length.
I only remember meeting her in NYC once I must have been
4 or 5 years old. I saw one photo of her with my
Uncle Frank when he went into the service.


NOW here's some info on Flo ,
His Father used to own the Trocadero night club.
I think his first show in the states was about 1905.
I know his shows were in the Old Amsterdam Theater.
He was still going strong in 1920
The Flora Dora show was also 1911-1913


All these Girls were Beautiful
Most of them married Millionaires.

Some photo 's are from the Rueben gallery,
