Press Photo, Nude Pilot Recovers After Forced Landing! - 1939

23-P-343

Regular price $25.00

Original real press photo, 8x10".  Press release in lower part of negative identifies Bernadine King, in the hospital, recovering from injuries sustained during a forced landing.  Apparently she was sunbathing in the nude and had to rush to dress before her forced landing.  (And I thought I had heard of everything!)  Release is dated 12 May 1939.  Good; 1" tear thru text at bottom and a little emulsion loss around her left hand. My price is only $25 but in truth this is priceless!
