Here's one of my favorite pin-up ohotos from WWII. It came with a medal group I own, so I have no background regarding the source of the photo:

Are those uniforms standard issue? :blink:

I dunno if you can really classify these as pin-ups, but they do show a pretty gal!

These are publicity stills of Constance Moore for the film 'I Wanted Wings'...

I have a couple of "YANK" magazines my dad kept and they have a full page devoted to "pinup babes" of the times. Dad also had small calender pages with scantilly clad "Vargas" type drawings. It's like the "ground-pounders" nose art.

USO_Show.jpg

Hi All, here is an agile girl working with the USO Camp Shows Branch, this photo came from a couple of hundred taken by the camp photograper with a USAAF photographic reconnaissance squadron based near Oxford, England. I can't remember the squadron number at present but it was APO234, something ?????? Farm thats all I can recall. They flew un-armed twin boom Lightnings and Spitfires.

What's she thinking at this moment ' right when I get home I need to peel the potato's and carrots, put the meat in the oven, make the gravy. !!!

There were all the famous faces in this bunch of photo's but I didn't manage to get those, the guy that accuired this lot of photo's kept all the stars, Genn Miller, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and the female actress'es, enjoy the photo. Cheers ( Lewis )

OK Techno-Weenies, what can we do to put a date on this photo? Obviously (to me, anyhow) pre-war but when?

Me too! Matter of fact I made a copy of the original to do just that. I can make one for you if you'd like...

This is one which I found on the net... I believe it was an auction image. Had to do quite a bit of work to clean it up so's to be presentable...

I've always been a huge fan of Gil Elvgren's pin ups. Does anyone know if he painted any during the War years?

Yes he did, although he also did a lot of other work such as story illustration, magazine ads and such.

If you're interested in Elvgren's history, take a looksee at 'The Gil Elvgren Story' at Gil Elvgren.com.

You can see some dated examples of his work HERE, including both pin-ups and non. Some of his work for Coca-Cola is among my favorite!

Here's another which isn't exactly a pin-up but it'll do, me thinks...

I believe this photo was taken at the Fort Worth Consolidated plant.

I started a dedicated thread for nose art not too long ago... check it out HERE...

I guess I should get busy and post a bit more in that thread, 'eh?

This small grouping of pin up photos came with a WWII - Korean War Marine grouping I acquired. As far as I can tell, he may have been one of the escort/bodyguards for various celebrities. I have a couple of photos of him posing with what looks like a couple of starlets of the period, but not pin up.

Can anyone tell me more about the "Petty Girls"? From the hairstyles here, I'm leaning a little more towards Korean War era than WWII? Exactly what MOS would have been escort/bodyguard to the lovelies? I would have reupped for that MOS!

I'm with you on your latter point... http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/w00t.gif

As to more info on these particular gals... I'd like to know myself. They're obviously inspired by George Petty's pin-ups which were known collectively as 'Petty Girls', just as Alberto Vargas' pin-ups were known as 'Varga Girls'.

Perhaps they're promo models for Esquire magazine, similar to Playboy's 'Bunnies'? Or maybe they had some connection to the movie, 'The Petty Girl' which was released in 1950?

A quick glance yields no mention of these girls in the few printed references I have on George Petty, but I'll look a bit closer and see what I can find out.

These are great shots, by the way!


Now... I've tried to post pinups with some sort of military theme or connection, but this one is an exception. We lost this gal recently... Yvonne De Carlo, best known to most as Lily Munster...

Thanks for the information on the Petty Girls! I'd personally like to learn more on the Marine that had this photo collection and find out what his connection to the ladies was. I do have his WWII USMC photo ID and dog tags naming him as Harold Edwards and a PLT/SGT and it's the same man standing with the two ladies here. They kind of have that "starlet" look from the WWII period to me?

Either of these ladies look familiar?

BTW - Nice image of Lily Munster!

Nice! That fella was one lucky SOB to get 'stuck' with that detail... ;)

That gal on the left looks very familiar... I've put some calls out and hopefully these two will be identified.


Here's a couple shots of a gal named Ann Miller...
