Happy Mardi Gras! Instead of showing gratuitous photos of girls flashing their boobs for beads on Bourbon Street, we've decided to look back at Mardi Gras celebrations of yesteryear.  Below are photos we found from the 1910s-1960s featuring animal costumes, flappers and male and female drag. Laissez les bons temps rouler.
