Thelma Freitag – 9/24/17

Amateur theatrics were and are a popular source of local entertainment in Olympia, even after the advent of moving pictures. In this photo from about 1925, a young Thelma Freitag poses in an exotic costume as publicity for an upcoming production. Her father, Louis, was a musician.
