Retro Belly Dancing

1 comment.-

An unidentified belly dancer in an unknown club.  One of two photographs taken in the same establishment from an album of Loyd Sandgren’s titled simply “Girls.”  Shot in the late 1960′s or early 1970′s.  Very hip looking integrated crowd.  The psychedelic posters on the walls add so much to the decor.
