Default Show your Americana / Non-Sports Memorabilia

In light of the B/S/T change, let's see what you have...

I've always been an avid fan of political and/or interesting signatures. Below are a few from my collection.

Thanks Scott. Always been a collector of his sig's. I have one additional, too - a Profiles in Courage soft cover. The hardcover is actually a very recent pick-up but had to have it since it is a Presidential signature (signed during his time in office).

Great JFKs;

Japanese propaganda photo #1; The airbase at Wheeler to the north, struck minutes prior and Hickham being stomped simultaneously. The 1st Japanese wave of bombers focus on Ford Island Naval Air Station. Meanwhile, the torpedo squadron begins the day shift with Battleship Row.

Note beautiful Waikiki Bch and Diamond Head, top right.

To paraphrase the caption, "The Enemy's battleship Okrahoma destroyed by our brave Airmen."

Default Happy Birthday Mr President...Happy Birthday to you...

"Happy Birthday, Mr. President" was a song sung by Marilyn Monroe on Saturday, May 19, 1962, President John F. Kennedy, at a celebration for his forty-fifth birthday, Sung in a sultry voice, Monroe sang the traditional "Happy Birthday to You" lyrics, with "Mr. President" inserted as Kennedy's name.

Monroe continued the song with a snippet from the classic song "Thanks for the Memory", for which she had written new lyrics specifically aimed at Kennedy.

Thanks, Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much

Afterwards, JFK came on stage and joked about the song, saying, "I can now retire from politics after having had Happy Birthday sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way," alluding to Monroe's delivery, her racy dress, and her general image as a sex symbol.

The song and Monroe's performance have been remembered for numerous reasons. First, it was one of her last major public appearances (Monroe died August 5, 1962). In addition, there are persistent rumors that President Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe had had an affair, giving Monroe's performance another layer of meaning.

Not much more to say after looking at THAT profile!

(referring to Marilyn, not the bear!)

The following are examples of original fashion publications photos, dating from the 1930s to 1970. The first two are from Vogue magazine, the second by Karl Lagerfeld for his catalog (Lagerfeld does his own photography) and the last from Harper's Bazaar. The second model is the great Jean Shrimpton.
