Circa 1940's vintage photo of an interracial couple in Alabama. Rare to find, especially considering it was found in the Deep South.Available at Anonymous Works.
Looks like a cut and paste to me!
I've seen this model in an old magazine ad, though I can't remember which one. I also think it's cut and paste. Why was it made? This makes the portrait more interesting in my opinion!
If that's true that would be REALLY interesting! Would love it if you could ever find a source. Why would someone do that? Intriguing...
She looks like the beautiful actress Jeanne Crain who was in a movie called "Pinky", "depicting the conflicts and tribulations of a light-skinned Southern black woman “passing” for white while in nursing school up North."
You are correct! I later found out that this is indeed Jeanne Crain.
