Bettie Page Slide
Our contributor Claire Sharp has found amongst a suitcase full of 1950s slides, what appears to be a color negative of 1950s pin-up model Bettie Page
Page’s uninhibited style broke through barriers in the world of risqué photography. People knew Page as the “Queen of Pin-ups.”
“Pin-up King” Irving Klaw supposedly destroyed most of his pin-up photos in the years after Congress called him before the committee investigating Juvenile Delinquency.
If this is one of Klaw’s photos, how did it survive? Claire asks History Detectives host Gwen Wright to investigate.
