Things that make you go, “Hmmmm.” 1922.

The Hula-hula doll has broken into society, at least into flapper society, as proved by this photograph from the Atlantic City Parade.

One thought on “Things that make you go, “Hmmmm.” 1922.

  1. “Hmmmm” is the exactly the comment I had! And not in a favorable way. But this was one of MANY such appropriations of “hula” in American pop culture at the time. “Hula-hula” dancers were all over the place, in vaudeville presentations in theaters and in carnival sideshows, and these ranged from silly to offensive, I take it.
