Description

Peg Bates was an African American international phenomenon for making extraordinary dance routines despite the fact that he had one wooden leg. This photo was signed in Paris during the Josephine Baker rage. Bates also founded a black resort in the Catskills. He retired from performing in 1989, at the age of 82! The photo has corner losses as if ripped from a bulletin board though each of these defects may be easily matted over. The photo is absolutely superb. Peg Bates signatures are extremely rare. (Music /Jazz /Black American)
