Photo Collection: Anne Porter & Yvonne Mullings Modelling in the 50s


Anne Porter Modelling 1950s, originally uploaded by olympia2x.
These were two of my grandmother's models, her particular favorites. They are wearing dresses designed by Mme. Willi Posey in the 1950s, maybe mid-50s. I love the contrast in their height. They were both such lovely sweet women. Verna Photographers. Brooklyn 10017.
