Songfacts®:

  • "Crinoline Days" was copyrighted November 2, 1922. The Girl in Crinoline was the Vaudeville singer Grace LaRue (1882-1956), so she was hardly a girl when Irving Berlin wrote this. She introduced the song with the Fairbanks Twins (the White Crinolines) - Madeleine and Marion Fairbanks, who were born in 1900. >>
