On Shorpy:
Today’s Top 5

Could easily pass

For a CK or Chanel ad in Vogue today.

Beach Policeman

Where's that swimsuit-measuring cop when we need him?

Ultra Mod

One of the few vintage models I've seen on Shorpy who would be considered highly desirable by today's standards.

1938?

Are we certain this is from 1938? It sure doesn't seem to fit in with that era.

Hard to Believe

This young lady would have been my mother's age or even a little older. She would have been 99 this year.

A wedding ring?

Kind of breaks the whole model fantasy thing. Or at least nudges it in a different direction.
