Goldwyn Girls mingle with Navy men during WW2 - c. 1940s

On October 6, 1889, a Frenchman named Joseph Oller made history by opening the world’s most famous burlesque club in Paris’ 18th arrondissement: the Moulin Rouge. Named for the red windmill on top of the building, it is the cornerstone of burlesque culture and very possibly the birthplace of the striptease.
