Josephine Baker Had An Ostrich Carriage (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

The best way to get around town in 1920s Paris? A carriage pulled by an ostrich, obviously.

We love this photo of Josephine Baker, the legendary dancer and singer probably most famous for her performance of the "Banana dance" at Paris' Folies Bergère, travelling in style during the roaring twenties. Imagine what errands you'd run in that thing. Thanks, redditor WorkFriendlyAcct, for this find.
