We Danced All Night
Barbara Cartland's autobiography, We Danced All Night, is her recollection of her life after she turned 18 and lived in the 1920's post war London. It's an interesting record of a different time and how the rich and poor in London lived after the horrors of WW1.
Francis Marshall illustrates the title of the cover with a heroine that looked a lot like Cartland! We see her wearing a typical dress from the era and the hero, handsome in evening wear, while they dance in a nightclub, which was new and all the rage in London. Note the black jazz band performing in the background. Tomorrow I will feature another autobiography illustrated by Marshall.
