The fox in fox
In the 1930's, people wore animals. That's just the way it was. I'm not about killing for the sake of fashion. If I were a fox I'd be pretty pissed off if my remains ended up flanked across the squat shoulders of a teenage Gotti brother. But if you're going to be worn, this the woman you want your carcass draped on.
Daughter Rhonda Moore agrees:
My mother Bessie Lee Moore was in her 20's when she posed for this shot with a fox stole around her shoulders. I believe the photo was taken in San Francisco, Ca. It's absolutely my most favorite photo of her, ever!
She was born in Jennings, Louisiana on April 22, 1912. Lived in Beaumont, Tx. where she attended local schools there through high school. Her family moved to Houston, Tx later where she graduated from Phyllis Wheatley High School (years later in 1972 I graduated from there, too). My mother had a beautiful soprano voice, and devoted her entire life to singing. She directed church choirs for over 50 years, until about age 82. She passed away on January 30, 2007.
My mother married Clarence Louis Moore, a nataive of Camden, Alabama, whom I must say was quite a 'dapper' dresser himself. [CLICK HERE FOR PROOF]
