Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio ...

If only Mrs Robinson knew - she would have bid for this 1930's photograph of a nude Joe DiMaggio in the showers at Yankee Stadium. It recently sold at auction for US$17,233 to John Rogers, owner of the Rogers Photo Archive in North Little Rock.

The Rogers Photo Archive is the largest privately owned collection of photographic images with well over 33 million images that include all photographic formats such as original vintage studio and cabinet photographs, wire and news service photos, glass plate negatives, and high quality digitals.

Details of the lot can be found here, and the Archive here.

 

..... A nation turns its lonely eyes to you (woo, woo, woo)

and so the song goes ...

 

Photo: Joe DiMaggio shown in all his glory basking in the showers of Yankee Stadium. Obviously aware of being photographed in such a state, he is seen smiling for the camera, Boudoir Photograph.
