for anyone who missed the lovely
esther williams when she was
starring in aquatic adventures on
the silvery screen of the 50's,
here she is in all her glory.
I remember her on saturday
afternoon TV, always perfectly
quaffed as she emerged sparkling
from the water, often surrounded
by a busby berkeley kaleidoscope
of similarly glam waterbabies.
this swimsuit (left) is spookily like
my print 'pattie's two piece' worn
by janet goldman's mum in the 40's.
could esther have been a copycat
|HER CO-STARS were many and varied|
|lo resolution but look at those buffed waterboys|
equally at home on water,
skin, or snow,
and with just a touch
|born in the same year as my own mum, 1921, esther was still|
looking good in later years, just look at that hairline :o)
