Great style is timeless. The photo is from the 1930s, but this beach wear wouldn't look out of place in the present day. I particularly like the sunglasses.

It is presumably a staged photo, but conveys the feeling of a snapshot. Super!

BTW this is a *very* famous actress, from the golden age of Hollywood. Can you name her?

@fitheach I was almost obsessed with Marilyn Monroe (and the circumstances of her death) as a teenager. I had a massive poster of her looking surprised at the hot air blowing up from a grate stuck on my wall.

I'm sure the teenage you was only interested in the photographic aesthetics.


@fitheach ...but it was a truly iconic image. To me at least.

Please remember on the same wall, I had a 3 page interview with Mark. E Smith pinned up with Blu-Tac.

Sure was.

Not many people are instantly recognisable 65 years later.
