This photo makes me uncomfortable in so many ways. Aside from the obvious, the only sunblock around in 1950 was sticky, red, and seldom used, and (as a fellow redhead) I can feel her skin sizzling. Get under an umbrella, girl! Somewhere, this woman is sitting around telling her grandkids, "I used to have the best skin, and now look at it." That being said, I think my favorite part of this picture is that no one is watching her contort herself. Was this the acrobats' day out?
