This news clipping from 1930 suggests that Mrs. Thelma Meers, wife and dance partner of popular 1920's - 30's ballroom dancer, Paul Meers, found their marriage to be quite incompatible. Just the year before, he was the subject of newspaper gossip for driving around Harlem in a chic maroon Packard Roadster given to him as a "love token" by a big "YOU'D NEVER GUESS WHO."
Mrs. Meers may have experienced irreconcilable differences with her husband, but by 1932, photographer and Negrophile Carl Van Vechten knew quite well that he wanted to capture the handsome Meers from both the front AND the back!
The resolution on this late 20's image was so crazy that I had to splice it in two parts - top and bottom - in order to copy and post it. Whether you prefer seeing Mr. Meers from the front, back, or as a top or a bottom - here he is, GURLS!
