Barbara Stanwyck, Ziegfeld girl, by Alfred Cheney Johnston, ca. 1924

Future Hollywood star Barbara Stanwyck, three-quarter length portrait, seated, turned to the left, holding fan. Photograph by Alfred Cheney Johnston "between 1920 and 1930", but more likely between 1922 (when Stanwyck, aged 15 and still named Ruby Stevens, became a Ziegfeld Girl), and 1926 (when she moved on to greater things).
