Hall & Barber, 1920’s Female Impersonator Duo

This lovely vaudeville duo is Hall & Barber, whose specialties were, “singing, dancing, comedy, piano” according to the handwritten pencil notes on the reverse of this 8″x10″ publicity shot. I don’t know which is Hall and which is Barber, but Barber’s first name was Billy and she was new to the act when the photo was taken. Looking at the dresses, the era must be the 1920s when the flat-chested flapper look, so kind of female impersonators, was all the rage. 23 skidoo!
