Here are some women with an earthy sense of humor. They look like they are really delighted by how scandalous they're being too with their signage. This is ca. 1920s, and these gals truly look like a wild ride.

They look like my Baba and her sisters right down to the sh*t-eating grins. I love your posts, Had I the resources, I would probably overspend on collecting every homeless photo and old postcard I could. That old warning of the photo taking one's soul is true, in part. In every one, a bit of the spirit of the people, time, and place is captured and immortalised. Each one is precious for that reason alone, and when they capture something particularly charming or important, their worth is incalculable. Thanks for sharing!

I love those grins on their faces. They just look like they're up to no good. :)
