Risque

Today's find is a tad not safe for work, so if you want to see it in all it's glory, click the blurry version. There is no actualy nudity, but it's a vintage-pin-up-va-va-va-voom-Bettie-Page-style picture. On to it:



Pin-up post card, no writing or markings on reverse.

Found in "Operation Venus" by John Russel Fearn. Published by Scion Limited, no date (1950s or therabouts).

It's quite tasteful really.

I thought so as well, but you never know who's reading.

Super cute - tame by today's standards. I am 81 and consider myself very openminded and even a bit envious of the young women nowadays. However, there are some areas that could stand to be toned down a bit. The picture you posted is really not a problem with me - you see much more on tv. Love your blog! Carol

Very cool and interesting website! I have few forgotten bookmarks too from used books that I bought here. Never thought someone would be collecting those bookmarks. A very unique idea!

I found your blog by clicking the "Next Blog" at the top of mine. It's so much fun. You never know what's going to pop up.

Great book - fun finds.

Love your blog! Pretty postcard and not at all offensive. She kind of reminds me of one of the Vargas girls, now he knew how to do it right, sexy but still very tasteful.
