Stunning Vintage Photos of the Ziegfeld Girls during the 1910s & 1920s

Ziegfeld Girls were the chorus girls from Florenz Ziegfeld's theatrical Broadway revue spectaculars known as the Ziegfeld Follies (1907–1931), in New York City, which were based on the Folies Bergère of Paris.

When producer Florenz Ziegfeld put together a small group of showgirls for a lighthearted summer show in 1907, nobody could have imagined the giant Broadway hit and lavish revue it would become. Yet the Ziegfeld Follies ran until 1931, and would jumpstart the careers of several successful future Hollywood actresses.
