Marilyn Monroe - 1945
Twenty, previously unpublished in full color, photographs of Marilyn Monroe (1945) taken on the beach near Santa Monica, California, for which she was paid her first modeling fee...$20. Plus a complete report by photographer William Carroll in his;"A day at the beach with Norma Jeane". A most unusual treasure for all Monroe fans. She had just returned from a vacation trip with David Conover whose friend, Potter Hewitt, recommended her to Carroll. His telephone call organized a day and time for their trip to Castle Rock, just a few miles north of Santa Monica. This unusual and rare set of pictures were the result, with the first one showing her use of a broken comb missing a number of teeth.
