Lottie Collins 1892

Description:
Lottie Collins, born 16 August 1865 and died 1 May 1910, was a famous music hall performer in Great Britain. She popularized the song "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay" which she heard while touring the U.S. and which I remember today. Does anyone else? Evidently, she did a rowdy and bawdy version of this song and looking at this picture, with her figure, I bet it was quite a performance!

By exposing her stockings that were held up by sparkling garters and her bare thighs, Lottie Collins became an icon of the "Naughty Nineties" in the United Kingdom.
