THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE COLLECTION OF SCRAPS AND PHOTOGRAPHS RELATING TO THE WOLFE TWINS
THEY WERE A VAUDEVILLE / BURLESQUE DUO FROM THE 20s-30s
SPECIALISING IN DANCING (SOFT SHOE) AND PLAYING INSTRUMENTS
I CAN'T FIND MUCH ABOUT THEM ONLINE BUT I ASSUME THEY WERE A GOOD ACT IN THEIR DAY
AS THERE ARE PLENTY OF OLD NEWSPAPER CUTTINGS AND PUBLICITY PHOTO'S.
INCLUDED IN THE LOT IS A VERY RARE AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO OF VIOLET AND DAISY HILTON
SIAMESE TWINS THAT WERE MEGA STARS OF THE DAY AND WERE ALSO IN THE HOLLYWOOD FILM "FREAKS"
THERE IS A DEDICATION THAT READS
"TO ROY, IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. MAY WE MEET AGAIN SOON.
AFFECTIONATELY
DAISY & VIOLET
NOV 17TH.1932"
THERE ARE MANY WOLFE TWIN PHOTO'S (SEE BELOW) AND NEWSPAPER CUTTINGS THAT SHOW WHERE THEY PLAYED
AND ALSO OTHER ITEMS THAT INTERESTED THE AUTHOR. A SAD CUTTING THAT I COME ACROSS WAS A NEWSPAPER CUTTING ABOUT THE SAD DEATH OF RALPH WOLFE WHO DIED IN A FIRE , IN HIS TRAILER WHERE HE LIVED IN THE 50s.
THE SCRAPBOOK IS IN A BAD WAY AND IN PIECES BUT MOST OF THE CUTTINGS AND PROGRAMMES ARE STILL IN TACT (SOME FRAGILE) AND FULLY LEGIBLE.
THIS IS A VERY RARE COLLECTION AND WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD TO A VAUDEVILLE HISTORIAN AS THIS
IS PROBABLY THE ONLY SURVIVING ACCOUNT OF THESE TWINS AND IT REALLY BELONGS IN A MUSEUM.
SOME OF THE PHOTO'S HAVE DATES AND NAMES ON THEIR BACKS, ONE OF THEM SAYS "FIRST LONG PANT SUITS, AND CAPS TO MATCH"
SOME OF THE PHOTO'S SHOW THEIR PARENTS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS.
ALL THE PUBLICITY PHOTOS ARE AT LEAST 8" X 10" INCLUDING THE HILTON SISTERS.
ONE OF THE WOLFE TWINS PHOTO'S IS HAND SIGNED.
