Barbara Stanwyck when she was in the Ziegfeld Follies

Barbara Stanwyck

Before she got into movies, Barbara Stanwyck spent a couple of years working as a Ziegfeld Follies showgirl. This photo looks like it is from this period, which would be 1922 and 1923. I wonder whether it’s by Alfred Cheney Johnston who was the main photographer for the Ziegfeld girls throughout the 1920s.
