Two From Maurice Seymour

Maurice Seymour was a Russian immigrant who opened a photography studio in Chicago in the 1920's. He specialized in theatrical portraits. The seller told me that these two images were of a stripper, and taken during the 1950's. There was type on the bottom, Pat Windsor. I've done an Internet search, and couldn't find any trace of this lady.
Time for a correction. According to the comment left by Mr. Charles Rosenberg, Pat Windsor, also known as Pat Windsor Mitchell was a singer. The dealer who sold me these photos was wrong about her being a stripper.

  1. Your photographs are of Pat Windsor aka Pat Windsor Mitchell. She was a professional singer. I doubt she was ever a stripper, but you are right, there is little information about her on the internet. One of the images you have was used on the 1993 CD reissue of her album "This is Pat".
