One of the most famous images ever taken, this is the photo that helped win WWII as soldiers carried it with them for motivation as they battled overseas. Betty Grable is peering backwards and shows off her greatest assets to the camera. A million boys would have sworn she was looking right at them! This image has been viewed a billion times and it has gone down in history as perhaps the most famous pin-up of all time with this vintage example being one of the only that actually dates to the 1940's/1950's (Grable's career) that we have ever seen! The condition and quality are both incredible!
