Mickey ‘Ginger’ Jones - The Upside DOwn Girl: vintage 8x10 photo
Mickey started her career in Chicago, but would go on to become a feature dancer in the mid 1940s through 1950s.  Mickey’s signature dance move, was to go to the side of the stage, stand on her hands with her legs on the wall or column at the stage edge, and perform her bumps up-side down!
