"Showgirls" Who Didn't Work the Pole
In the late 40's, a magazine called "Showgirls" was published for just a few issues. The magazine was dripping with sexiness thanks to the splendid cover illustrations by pulp artist extraordinaire George Gross. His ladies were always clothed in tip-top, classic 40's fashion-- Veronica Lake pulled out of reality and painted onto the page. In this case, sexy bikinis were his choice. It wouldn't have went over well with the censors had the "showgirls" been naked. Our collection consists of four issues of this delightful magazine. Ahh, "Showgirls" before it was tainted by a bad Elizabeth Berkley movie.
