Lynn Bari (colorized)

Lynn Bari was a 30s and 40s B-movie actress and a popular WWII pin-up girl.

 

The photograph was probably taken in 1944 because this picture from the same session was published in Yank Magazine, the US army weekly, on October 13 of that year. (I could not find a bigger version of that one).

 

I cleaned up and colorized this version, but I did not retouch out the plank. It was already gone from the original I worked on. It's possible the plank was bleached out by the photographer himself. He could not leave her floating like that in a seated pose; so I wonder what he intended.
