A group of images of a pair of acrobatic dancers of the Jazz Age is listed under Moffat's file index under 'Hoffman and Greville.' The older and the younger woman appear both separately and together in a series that seems to have been made at one session. Little is currently known about the dancers, but the images capture the modern energy and glamour of the stage during the 'roaring 'twenties'.
