Yes, yes, yes -- the blogging has been nonexistent lately, due to the terribly sad fact that I've had to be charming and fabulous at so many events lately. Today a couple of us managed to relax and head over to the Oldsmar Flea Market, where I picked up an amusing pinup magazine from 1955 -- it seems to contain everyone from Lili St. Cyr, Rita Hayworth and Mamie van Doren to Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor and Cyd Charisse... and everyone in between.
Also picked up a 1957 issue of Satan magazine, which contains Bettie Page on the cover as well as in the main centerfold. I might trade it for some playing cards or something else... not sure yet.
In addition I discovered a "Pin-Ups by Bernard of Hollywood" magazine (from 1950), which is full of old black-and-white pinups of "undiscovered" models. Is it just me, or is the unnamed model below a very young Marilyn Monroe?
I will attempt an actual blog post tomorrow....
