The Great Pin-up Thread

Especially those Pre-hustler type glamour photos and illustrations. I always loved those.

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

are any of them Vintage or are they all Mock?
The one above this is a bit too racy to have been made during the 40's-50's
and the one above that, if it were from the time, shouldn't those nylons have a seam up the back of her legs?
I predate panty hose! I am old!

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

The lack of seams on the stockings could have been artistic license (left out on purpose).

These pinups look like early 60's to me. When were butterfly chairs first made anyway?

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

the chairs were 1950's .
I don't remember any pin ups in the 60's
and the seam was in fashion.
it would seem strange to eliminate it.

the clue is the hair.
the 1960's was hair spray and big hair.
None of these has ratted up hair.
they look like they are mock ups, not original to the time they are depicting.
the days of Betty Grable's legs ..

Post #11 by JD looks to be either late 50's or early-early 60's judging by the style of the painting, not so much the style of the subject.

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

Those aren't mock-ups.

Gil Elvgren's worked spanned from the 1930's to the 1970's.

Most of the pictures I posted were from the 50's. The one with the girl on the red car (Help Wanted - Petty Perplexed) is from 1960.

A good site about the artist

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

that's a shot gun. see the sign on the building, Skeet Club?
hair bands were early 60's but that skirt is too high!
it dates it to a later time.
the mini came out in the mid 60's.
I remember Serina on Bewitched started wearing them.

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

I missed that. I guess advertising back then was pretty involved in telling a story with the art. It was more expressive that way, even if it was less effective. Kind of like the drug ads that show people out having a good time, and then tell you to ask your Dr. "if dryhoxinil is right for you!" Right for what? VD? ED? Allergies? Post Mortem Depression? The Heebee Jeebees? Who the hell knows?

RE: The Great Pin-up Thread

okay, we're waiting for more!

an add that used to be a poster seen in Sundry shops was of a young girl
on a beach and a dog is grabbing her bathing suit by the butt
pulling it down to reveal her tan line.

the product was Sea & Ski Suntan lotion .. or was it Coppertone?

That was coppertone. I think that was a Norman Rockwell painting too (I think)
