Postscript to yesterday's posting:  Citation has its rewards.

Mette Peters (animation archivist at EYE) was kind enough to send these two Dutch newspaper clippings of 1928, documenting the press coverage that Josephine Baker's (24 August) appearance in Volendam received.

Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad, 24 August 1928
