Today the famous Cotton Club in New York is one of the most famous and iconic night clubs of all time. It ushered in the Jazz-Age and was a huge part of the evolution of both music and culture in America. The problem was, the club was known as a somewhat edgy spot and few photographs were taken f it, especially on the inside. The offered new discovery fresh out of a New York City newspaper archive is a completely unique, never before seen image from inside the famous Cotton Club and showing a performance by Bill "Bojangles" Robinson on stage with bikini clad black dancers behind him! A double weight rarity, this is one of the most interesting and historically significant images of music and pop-culture we have ever seen. Condition and quality of this double weight, silver gelatin masterpiece are both amazing!
