Norma Jeane Dougherty
In 1946, photographer Joseph Jasgur photographed an unknown gal named Norma Jeane.
Recently, these photographs have surfaced for auction.
If you haven't seen them already, take a look.
Marilyn before she was Marilyn: can't you see the star quality in that smile?
(And those freckles on her chest?)
Love this one!
Not bad for a first photo shoot, eh?
