Another example of a use for the word "timeless"! In any generation and at any time, a beautiful woman. Great picture.

Did she escape the notice

of Charles Dana Gibson? Odd, I was just showing a friend an article on Evelyn Nesbit and Stanford White last night.

Which reminds me,

I gotta get back to work on that time machine. Be back later.

Do not pass Go

Go directly to the Pretty Girls Gallery. Near the top of the list.

What's she trying to say ?

She's trying to send us a hand signal. It's too subtle for me, I can't quite work out what she wants.

Memories of Thisbe

I once met a girl on the Jersey Shore who owned a pair of twin little pups named Pyramus (sp?) and Thisbe. She was surprised that I was familiar with those names, even though I was not exactly up-to-date with their story.
This Thisbe though, was lovely indeed.

She reminds me of a younger, drug-free Drew Barrymore.

WOW is right !

Looks exactly like a young Drew Barrymore.


This be quite the "Babe" is another way of putting it.


Reminds me of Carroll Baker "Baby Doll." But that was over 50 years later. And this girl is way prettier. Any more info? Was "Thisbe" a play? Was Thisbe the girl's name? What could this be? Jim

[Thisbe gets hit on by this dude Pyramus. Who is all like, babe, we gotta hook up. That chick I was seeing last week? Ancient history. - Dave]
