The sisters with French dancer Mlle. Floryane on the cover of ‘Paris Plaisirs’, July 1927
As I was researching for my
previous post on the Sisters G, I came across so many wonderful images that I’ve decided to do a second post to showcase some of those that didn’t make it into the blog. They’re roughly in chronological order.
The sisters with an unknown girl in the centre (she is possibly Mlle. Florayne) in a performance in Paris in 1927, photographed by James Abbe.

This uncredited portrait of the sisters by Dorothy Wilding’s appeared in an article in ‘The Royal Magazine’ in which Peter Bennett interviewed some of the ‘most talented’ sister acts. See my previous blog for the colour version.
