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.

Leggy Lady

Leggy Lady

Another glamour photo from the collection. Again I have no information about the subject, location or photographer but WOWSY!! View full size.

Today's Top 5

WOWSY!! is right

This incredibly sexy image haunted me for days...I kept thinking she looked sort of familiar, was probably famous, that she wasn't just somebody's hot WWII girlfriend. Then I figured it out: Linda Darnell. I've attached a couple of (not so alluring) photos to back up my hunch.

[I think she's closer to Hedy Lamarr. -tterrace]

You Wish!
I don't think you'd have caught snooty Hedy parked on her ass in the grass, so-to-speak. Now, a good ol' Texas gal like Linda? ...much more likely.

Pretty hot-looking.

She'd be pretty hot-looking, even now.

Could be a Miss America

She looks to me like Bess Myerson (Miss America, 1945). Man, what a dish! [Does that date me as an old guy?]
