Description
A young woman in a bathing suit on Venice Beach has a silhouette of a movie star applied to her arm. In the frame at right, a man carefully applies the temporary "tattoo". In the frame at left, the woman proudly shows the result, holding up a photograph of Will Rogers (whom the silhouette has been made to resemble somewhat). Circa 1930s.
