These Mystery Photos of a 1950s Female Gang Member Are Sort Of Badass

Who knows if these images are real, but they are apparently meant to show the average day in the life of a teenage delinquent in 1955.

1. For this female gang member, smoking in bed is apparently no big thing.

By the way, is it 3:30 a.m. or 3:30 p.m.?

We should also note that, like some modern female gang members (cholas), her eyebrow game is on point!

2. She also appears to be a bit of a boss! Look at the way those boys are listening to her.

Also, how old are the members of this "boys" gang?!

3. I have no idea what's going on here: they're either playing imaginary dice or they're going to break out into a song from West Side Story.

7. But it isn't all violence; the day ends with everyone happily attending a dance/makeout session at the boys' apartment.

Well, except for the guy on the right wearing Fred Mertz pants, he seems to not be interested in that girl.
