  1. Hello Dash:
    Oh, how we love black and white images and these are splendid.

    High in Manhattan indeed, we should certainly never be persuaded to climb to these heights, let alone lean over to get a better view!

  3. Definite glamor! What amazes me is how few cars are on the street - MUCH different than NYC today!

  4. I love the blog, which I discovered while searching for images of Rambova after watching Nazimova in "Camille" - those costumes! Anyway, as all things web-related, one page led to another and there you were. I've been a follower ever since. Now I'd like to return the favor. I ran across a site this morning you might enjoy - if you don't already know it! http://www.gogmsite.net/

    Also, have you considered a post on Lee Miller? Model, muse, fashion photographer, war correspondent - what a woman! I recommend Carolyn Burke's biography "Lee Miller: A Life" - a great read.

    Thanks for the inspiring posts.

  5. Ahhh ! brings back lovely memories of being high in Manhattan, being high up in Manhattan and wishing I were there for a week or so .. high or not :)
    I used to wish I looked just like Natalie Wood.. except I am totally her opposite in coloring lol. She was something else.

  10. Manhattan and glamorous movie stars never cease to inspire. I find them even more alluring than Hollywood.

  11. Ren, Thank you for your lovely comment and the link. I have the Caroline Burke biography, it is a great read and Lee was quite a lady, no doubt I will get round to doing a post on her sooner or later.
