This Sunday, the fabled real-life vaudeville trunk of GYPSY ROSE LEE (and her sister, Baby June) will be auctioned at Bonhams and Butterfields in Los Angeles. The trunk held costumes, etc. for Mama Rose as she pushed Baby June and her Newsboys across the Orpheum Circuit in a story which became the Sondheim/Stein/Laurents legend: GYPSY. Included in the lot are photographs of Baby Louise as a newsboy in an act that included the real-life Chowsy. (Yes! There really was a Chowsy.) For a link to the auction catalogue:
