Axiom Proven Once Again

As it is often said when a picture of the darling Marilyn is posted ... She never took a bad picture ...

The lovely smile, beautiful hair and a natural body shape that still makes men drool 51 years after her death.

Splendid

Recovery, I must say.

Two Words

Hubba Hubba !

Tough Job

Poor John Vachon. Travel up to a beautiful part of Canada, hang around and photograph some young actress named Marilyn Monroe. Nice work if you can get it. I would have taken this gig, but was only 1 year old at the time. Where's a time machine when you need it?

Architectural theme

For Alberta hospitals c. 1953? Dreary. But the hospital "gown" is aesthetically quite OK.
