Description

Some time ago, while at a New York flea market, inveterate collectors Michael Hurst and Robert Swope discovered a large body of snapshots: album after aged album of well-preserved images, taken roughly between the mid-50s and mid-60s, depicting a group of cross-dressers united around a place called Casa Susanna, a rather large and charmingly banal Victorian-style house in the Catskills. The inhabitants, visitors, guests, and hosts used it as a weekend headquarters for a regular 'girl's life.' Through these intimate photos we see fashion shows, parties and family.
