Steppin' Out

Bound for New York aboard the RMS Queen Mary on this day in 1939 were dancers Fred Astaire and Paul Draper. Astaire could be seen at the time with Ginger Rogers in the picture, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle. Draper appeared at many popular New York hot spots, including the Rainbow Room, the Persian Room at the Plaza Hotel, and Carnegie Hall.
