After beginning work as a dancer and vaudeville performer at the age of nine, Astaire built a successful performance career with her younger brother, Fred Astaire." See them both in nearby photo Fred and Adele Astaire (LOC) From her Wikipedia entry: "After the idea of performing overseas was suggested, Adele and Fred agreed to take For Goodness Sake (renamed Stop Flirting) to the West End in London. On May 30, 1923, their show opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre and received a standing ovation." This pair of photos were probably taken when they were sailing for London.
