Over There

The Time: 1942.
The Place: U. S. of A.
The Reason: Raising the morale of our Boys.

America was at war on 2 fronts. Lacking opposable thumbs, I thought to myself, "Shirley - you can't throw a grenade, you can't man an ak-ak gun... what can you do to help the war effort?"

I finally found a way one afternoon whilst trying on swimming costumes at Filene's. Catching a glimpse of my backside in the changing room mirror, I thought to myself "Right. Let's at least give the boys a reason to come back home."

And the pin-up seen 'round the world was born.
