Group Description

1954 Glamour

"Photographic cheesecake had existed since the very beginning, but it was not until the 40's and 50's that it came into its own. When the US sent it's boys overseas, they took with them pin-ups as reminders of what it was back home they were fighting for. Cheesecake was painted on the noses of airplanes and photos and magazines decorated lockers and bulkhead walls. The women in the pictures were both nameless "girls next door" and movie stars."
