About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Soldier gets "Bunny Ears": 1944

Soldier gets "Bunny Ears": 1944

This image was scanned from my grandfather John Baker's Warbook. In this photo, we have an unidentified soldier getting "bunny ears" from a French woman. Judging by her attire and the attire of the woman sitting down, it may be safe to say that this was taken at a brothel.

Coincidentally, both the soldier and the woman sitting have wedding rings on. Although this image has no caption in the Warbook, it is signed by Dale Rooks and was probably taken in early September, 1944 while the USS Duane was in Southern France. View full size.

A Hairy Situation

Apparently Brazilian waxes were not available at that point in time.
