I love the photo.

This photo shows the syle, elegance, and grace of the black woman. These women were beautiful and knew it, and they did not have to be half-naked to show it. Taken at a time when people took great care to present their best selves in public, these lovely ladies would probably be appalled to see people walking around in sweat pants and over-sized t-shirts in public. This photo should remain a permanent fixture on ur site. The micro-cosmic idea of fly funky diva-ism.
