True story: Leaving 7 Nude Women Behind (1961)

Here’s one more true story from Jet, the issue from 1961 (see the previous one here). It is from the criminal column (page 48).

Bandits Flee; Leave 7 Nude Women Behind
It wasn’t a nudist convention, but seven nude women and two naked men were found by police in a Brooklyn corset shop when the ofiicers answered a phone call reporting a holdup. The nude nine explained that the bandits forced them in to a back room and made them undress, then placed their clothes in front of the lighted shop where they would be difficult to retrieve without being seen from the street. The holdup men made off with $1,000 from the purses of the women and pockets of the two husbands who had accompanied their wives to the “corsetorium.”

It wasn’t a nudist convention. Can you imagine that?
