What A Bombshell

An original Joseph Jasgur photograph of Mary Ann Gleason as a bombshell pin up styled as a torpedo spreading patriotic Americanism in 1942. From the seller:

The Chevronettes were women signed up by Standard Oil Company to be part of the company’s home front morale raising and promotional war efforts, beauty queens and fresh faced starlets who worked with celebrities to raise money during WWII. The Los Angeles landmark Victory House was an entertainment area created in Pershing Square for rallies and selling war bonds. Events occurred almost daily with many celebrity appearances, originally named Defense House. In February 1942, its name was changed to Victory House.
