This grouping of three photos was on the inside front page of one of my grandfather's WWII photo albums. He would come out with the scrapbooks and ask if a visitor would like to see a picture of his secretary during the war.  He'd flip open the scrapbook and there was the  giant 8x10 glossy of the above islander wearing her necklaces and a smile. Next to her were one-inch tall photos of the two WACs who were grandpa's secretaries during the war. I got a kick out of it ... grandma hated when he did this!
