i saw this as well and instantaneously fell in love.
ms. bow will always remain first in my heart though.
lillian gish is a close third.

You might also consider Marlene Dietrich.
I met Lillian Gish c. 1980 at a showing of Broken Blossoms. But as a young woman, she was in a whole other class of beauty than Bow or Brooks.
I love your dining car photo. See you at the last seating.

Colleen Moore had the same flapper spark that Louise Brooks had. I believe Colleen was the first to sport the bob hairstyle.
