Gallery: Awesome Stripper Audition Polaroids From The ’60s And ’70s

Holy shit, guys. We’ve just hit the mother lode of never-before-seen 1960s and 70s style photos. It comes in the form of a whole bunch of “audition” Polaroids from a SoCal strip club an anonymous Flickr user (supposedly) purchased for all of $10. Looking through the pictures, I’m struck by how very un-stripper-like many of the women seem. Why, some of the photos could even be mistaken for senior portraits. Others are more vampy; I wonder if they were more likely to be chosen than the innocent looking ones? One thing’s for certain: with stripper clothes of yesteryear looking as cool as they did, it’s not hard to see why people like Dita Von Teese are trying to bring some retro glamor back to the ol’ titty bar.

    The lad is sea-foam green with the white hat (#10) is absolutely killing it. I hope she went on to work at Vogue.

      RIGHT?! I want to look like her. Right now. And those shoes! She is my hero.

    these aren’t polaroids, they’re just regular commercially developed snapshots, which could be why the raunch factor is so low.

    These are awesome pictures.

    If strippers were like this now, I would go to a strip club

    The one in the white nightgown is my absolute fave.
    These are amazing, if only for the wicked retro styles.

    I think #13 is the Courtney Stodden of the ’60s. At least retro-Courtney has actual style :P

    Isn’t that Olivia Munn in photo #2?

    The cinderblock bookcase! Height of 70s low-rent chic; we had one in our apartment when I was a kid. In fact, our living room looked a lot like the room with the orange carpet depicted in many of these photos. I was a little nervous that I was going to click on one of the thumbnails and see my mom!
