PIC OF THE DAY

AN AMERICAN GIRL IN ITALY


I love love love this Photo

An American girl in Italy 1951 by Ruth Orkin
Visually I love this photo
Its the place... Italy
Its the style of dress, boho even for 1951
It's the fact that this is not a model but a real girl traveler

The photo was taken by

Ruth Orkin (1921 – 1985)

Here are a few more pics taken on the same day, same girl






This fabulous non model was called Jinx...suits her I think

  7. hi! i do love the photos too! espicially those taken in black and white. i do think that black and white photos back then, tells more stories, than just being a picture itself. thanks for sharing.

  10. I love this postcard; how its in black and white. It brings out the vintage feel of it all. But I can see her discomfort as she has so many men staring at her... I would hate that too.
