Description

Meet feisty Adelie Hurley - daughter of famous Antarctic- and war- photographer Frank Hurley - who worked both sides of the lens; read about Dorothy Leckie, at eleven years old surely the youngest Pix cover girl; and see the shot that made Joyce Walter 'Typical Australian' of 1941.

Who was Australia's Marilyn Monroe? Did we have our own Lana Turner? Madeleine Hamilton tracks down the swimsuit and glamour models of an earlier era to share their stories. Enriched with first-hand accounts from the models, and letters from their many fans, as well as gorgeous pictures of the girls themselves, Our Girls: Aussie Pinups of the 40s and 50s tells the tale of these women and Australian pin-up art before, during and after World War II
