A Fabulous Photograph Of Chick Webb And The Crew At The Amazing Savoy Ballroom In Harlem, 1927

We found this great Silver gelatin photographic print on the NYPL Digital Collections site of a group portrait of beauty contestants from a contest sponsored by the Inter-state Tattler magazine.

The image was taken at the legendary Savoy Ballroom in the late 1920s.

The Tattler’s managing editor, Bennie Butler, is in the top row at far left.

Members of Chick Webb and his Harlem Stompers, who are appearing at the Savoy, are shown in the far background.
