Mark: I’m fascinated by this photo and wonder what you know of its provenance. I recently acquired a cache of nearly 200 similar “snapshots” of performers and staff, all taken on or about the roof of the Roxy between 1927 and ca.1930. Thats’s the good news. The bad news: only a handful are identified! I’d appreciate any info you have. Bill Savoy P.S.: I’m flattered that two pix of my Roxy model are among your favorites!
