Discovered at a New York flea market this large body of snapshots: album after aged album of well-preserved images, taken roughly between the mid-50s and mid-60s, depict a group of cross-dressers united around a place called Casa Susanna, a rather large and charmingly banal Victorian-style house in small-town New Jersey. Through these wonderfully intimate shots perhaps never intended to see the light of day outside the sanctum of the house Susanna and her gorgeous friends styled era-specific fashion shows and dress-up Christmas and tea parties. As gloriously primped as these documentary snaps are, it is in the more private and intimate life at Casa Susanna, where the girls sweep the front porch, cook, knit, play Scrabble, relax at the nearby lake.
