I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

Unmarked Photo

But I just love it.  Boyfriends, back in the day (when back in the day was REALLY BACK!)....and doesn't Mr. Left give off a Jon Hamm vibe?


"July 4, 1950"


"Race Point, July, 1947"


I just adore this one....so provocative..so, so...Esther! How brazen she was, right there on Revere Beach, June 1948. Can'tcha just hear that oil sizzle on that thigh?

A Lesson in Lipstick

Someone's trying to show dear Esther how to fem it up!

More unmarked photos....

Any guesses?

and even more unmarked pictures....

Another unmarked photo....

I've stared at this woman's face with my magnifying glass (think Little Edie) and can't put a name to it. She's obviously fabulous....and possibly the star.

Unmarked Snapshots

I just love this set!

Can't recognize anyone in these or what show they were taken at. Boo-hoo.
