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?
