Recently, clicking around Getty looking for pictures to illustrate summer, I landed on a series of photos that can only be described as highly specific: a series of photos of three “chorus girls” cavorting on a London theater rooftop with a giant block of ice. Once again I’m forced to ask: This is a repressed-but-horny midcentury sex thing, isn’t it?

Here we have, according to the caption, “Chorus girls from the show ‘Sauce Tartare’ at the Cambridge Theatre in London, keep cool on the roof of the theatre with a block of ice, 28th June 1949.” Sauce Tartare appears to have been a “musical review.” Here’s the best part, though: that’s a young Audrey Hepburn on the left, helping her companion balance her butt on that giant block of ice.

Looks refreshing, though. And where else are you wearing that bathing suit you bought in February?

Genuinely couldn’t figure who she was in those photos at first. It’s absolutely wild how good plastic surgery was that long ago.
