Current mood: curious
Does this give Carole Lombard sufficient “street cred”? Actually, I created it using the free app http://www.straightouttasomewhere.com/ (thank you, Dr. Dre, whose Beats firm came up with this), and I like to think that somewhere, Carole’s enjoying this tribute to her initial hometown. (If you hear of a lightning bolt striking someone in Los Angeles on this hot, but otherwise sunny day, you’ll know I was wrong, in which case it’s been nice knowing you.)
Our topic for today actually concerns this:
It’s a lovely framed photo of Carole, probably from 1933 or ’34, measuring 9″ by 10 3/4″ and in “a beautiful carved wood frame,” as the seller states. I have no idea when this was framed, or whether it’s a vintage image or a reprint. I suppose whomever wins this auction could remove the back and find out if they’re really that curious:
