Clara Bow’s childhood home: 857 73rd Street, Brooklyn, New York

On the second floor of this unpretentious Brooklyn house, lived Clara Bows family in 1922. Clara Bow was then a school girl. Her father worked in Coney Island. Her mother was a bed-ridden invalid. The little red-head mailed a cheap postcard picture of herself to several motion picture magazines then conducting a contest. The winner was to be given a screen opportunity. Clara Bow won.
