I thought I’d share one of the first pictures that inspired me to create Vintage Black Glamour. The caption from Corbis on this circa 1920s picture reads “Photo shows Thelma and Bonnie, called the “Graceful Creoles,” posing coyly for the photographer at the Lido. The Lido is in Venice, Italy. And you thought you just loved “Thelma and Louise”… :)
