Mr. Palmer did a great publicity shoot at Douglas that day. Dress was a bit formal I would say! Oil coated aluminum shavings from a lathe are not something I would wear good clothes around!

I like her "crown" of aluminum lathe shavings. those shoes are back in fashion.
She is probably getting paid really good money for that time.
Shavings don't always come with oil on them.
I am delighted to have found Mr. Palmers photos. Truly an artist!!
Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Femmes je vous aime, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
