This is Salome

This is Salome

This is Salome-an Illustration from the syndicated Salome Sun by Claude G. Putnam.

This image from a 1926 Salome Sun was published so that Dick could answer “a lot of folks” who wanted to know what Salome looks like. The dancing stick figure became an iconic one and soon appeared on roadside signs and even on the walls of buildings. It was used by Kevin Costner in the opening credits of “Tin Cup” which is set in a Texas town modeled after Salome. Hall called the town “Salome Where She Danced” when it was founded in 1904 by Hall, his brother Ernest and Charles Pratt. It’s named after Pratt’s wife who danced on the sand because it was so hot.
