Today Burlesque Babes presents the lovely Sally the Shape.

  • She is mentioned fondly on the nostalgic site "You just may be a Baby Boomer from Toledo" -- " Got into the old Town Hall Burly-Q many times, even when underage. Ah...the good old days, when they didn't enforce things LOL Remember seein Sally The Shape (45" by the tape!) in person, along with Tempest Storm & many others. "

"Anonymous" wrote to me to say this about Sally the Shape:

"... Sally The Shape, Barbara Shoesmith, hailed from Fall River, MA. She graduated from B M C Durfee High School in 1954. After high school, she taught dancing in Fall River. ..."

If you click on the magazine article pic above, and magnify it some, you can barely make out the opening paragraph, and see that it says she was born in Saudi Arabia, came to the US at 12, and opened a dance school after high school graduation. The article goes on about her following in Gypsy Rose Lee's footsteps, and that she start stripping in Toledo. Too blurry for me to make out any more.
