Los Angeles, CA, US
 [Usually found with logo of E.S.] [Not the
same as "Ecstacy Views" series made in Brooklyn,
NY.] Produced 11 known series of 12 views each,
on RMs, each showing 1 to 3 women in sequences
such as strip-tease, dancing, at beach (made in
studio, with beach backdrop), playing cards,
etc. Fairly elaborate studio sets; costumes
range from modest to full frontal nudity; views
in each series numbered, on one set (decorous
dancing) additional credit to "Ecstacy Series,
Los Angeles, Cal." is printed across end of mt.;
4 known sets have set #s, 801, 802, 806, 810.
All bear "CR 1924 by E.S. Co."; somewhat
surprisingly they actually were CR, & several samples are in Lib. of Cong. No clues as to
photographers. While the risque series were
likely their main stock, they also produced set
of 15 views CR 26 of the Al G. Barnes circus in
Los Angeles, showing workers, performers,
