Here is a great black and white tear sheet from Jet Magazine in the 1950’s of Pin up twins who sit on the “Tree Of Hope” at 129th Street and 8th Avenue (aka St. Nichloas Avenue) in Harlem, New York.

The article reads:


Pin Hopes On “Tree Of Hope”: In front of Harlem’s famed “Tree Of Hope,” chorines Carol Carter and Blondell Cooper “hope” for success when they debut their new dance act at Small’s Paradise on Dec. 14. Tradition is that “Tree Of Hope” will give good luck to entertainers just starting in show business.
