The Que Que Club


A 1930’s high yellow social club of mostly mulattos.
It’s really crazy how these little ‘clubs’ were allowed to exist and thrive
back then….well for all I know it could still be going on today , but on
the low. In any event, it’s history so it will be included in this
on-line collection.

Rooftop Antics


Two young girls clowning around on a city rooftop in their swinsuits.
I believe these two girls are Puerto Ricans that lived in uptown
Manhattan or the Bronx in the late 1930’s or early 40’s.
