      I have always wanted to do a series of shots base on the fashions from this time period. I absolutely love these fashions.

      I have never seen an image of a a black flapper. How cool. I have always wanted to be a flapper of sorts. Nice to know I could have been, eh.

      Hello Adelaide,
      I really have no idea in regards to the subject's identity. The photo was taken by James Van Der Zee, the preeminent African-American portrait photographer in New York City during the 1920's and 30's.
