Carole Lombard is in that pic, fifth from left, taken sometime in 1928 during work on one of Mack Sennett’s comedy shorts. Lombard apparently wasn’t scheduled to appear in swimwear that day, as she’s wearing a horizontally-striped sweater and skirt. Sennett himself is at far right, in a white hat.

Others posing with Carole are, from left, Kathryn Stanley, Leota Winters, Madeline Hurlock, visitor to the set L.M. Cobbs, Nancy Cornelius and Marie Pergain. We hope the person who wrote on the back of this photo recognized Lombard at least, but we can’t be too sure:

(Note the reference to “Max” Sennett, yet another reason for concern. And while Lombard’s final two-reeler for Sennett, “Matchmaking Mamma,” wasn’t released until March 1929, she probably left Sennett’s troupe sometime in 1928.)

Anyway, this vintage rarity — a single-weight glossy, measuring 8″ x 10 1/4″, in very good condition — can be yours. Bidding begins at $149.99, ending at 5:06 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday.
