  1. When you think you already saw every little pictures of Charlie .... bam ! a new one appears ! Thank you :o)

  2. Jess, could you explain to European Chaplin fans what is (or was?) a Vanity fair float, and why there was one in the Chaplin Studios? Thanks. D.

    1. A float is a platform that is built for a parade. This float may have had something to do with the photographer, James Abbe, whose photos appeared in "Vanity Fair" magazine. I could have sworn that I once read a more detailed description of this photo but for the life of me I can't remember where.
