Paris, 1908 at The Prix du Prince de Galles at Longchamp racecourse. ...a furore breaks out as three beautiful models enter the enclosure –beneath their exquisite and exceptionally clinging gowns they appear to be wearing – nothing! It was obvious to all who saw them that the young women were wearing neither corset, petticoat nor chemise! The designer of the dresses was Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix.
Loved the photo, this was the caption: Tauentziengirls, a subsect of the legal prostitutes who reported to the Berlin vice authorities. Usually they were found on Tauentzienstrasse and characterized by their flapper style & skull caps.
