    Thanks for the link Rick.

    I had never seen this picture before. Definitely a beautiful woman in her day.

    I would say that she is stunningly beautiful even today.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Certainly if I was her age I'd be happy to be married to her...

    My neighbor upstairs has a poster of this photo hanging in the front entrance of our apartment building, and I see this wonderful photograph every day! Nice to read a little bit of the history behind it.

    Orkin had a genius moment when he shot this picture. Everything is perfect about it. Thanks for the link, great story.

    I believe she (Ruth Orkin) was indeed a woman .

    The story linked to in CGW's post makes that fairly clear (once you get past the ads).
