1. Introduction

There exists a remarkable similarity between the light curves of some luminous blue variables (LBVs) and that of the Be star, [FORMULA] Cas, during its phase of variability in the period 1933--1942. Is this similarity simply fortuitous or does it indicate some unexpected connection between the two types of star and/or between the circumstellar environment of each? In the following I discuss evidence for this apparent similarity and consider some consequences.
