"Our Gal Sally" Starr 1923-2013

This photo is ca. 1955...when I had the good fortune to get to see Santa, probably at Gimbel's downtown at 8th and Market along with TV personality Sally Starr.  Sally was a major local TV star here in Philadelphia hosting daily children's programs that featured Popeye cartoons and the Three Stooges shorts from about 1954 to 1971. Sally died yesterday at age 90. She was very gay-friendly. I remember seeing her at gay pride events at Penn's Landing some time ago.
