A photographer for an unidentified men’s magazine from the 1950s (Argosy? Swank? Nugget?) took a dancer with the nom de strip “Dotty Pearce” up to the roof of the Rosslyn Hotel for some pictures. The article is part of a lot of magazine clippings listed on EBay for $12.95.
Technical note: This is the side blade of the Rosslyn Hotel sign. (Nathan Marsak, this is for you!)
The seller has also listed some photos of “torso tosser” “Dee Evil” from the Zamboanga Club in Los Angeles.
Alas, the Zamboanga Club, which flourished at 3826 W. Slauson Ave. about 1956, is just a memory. Are there ghostly bumps and grinds late at night? The neighbors aren’t talking.
