Hawaiian Pin-Up Girl, 1946

This postcard features a 1946 illustration by Billy DeVorss, who produced images for advertising but is primarily known for his pin-up girls.


An Aussie Sheila

Bleached hair, butterfly tattoo over the heart, the color-coordinated, overzealous eye-shadow, and a vocabulary that would peel paint. I think I’m in love.


Bad Habit

One thing I like about this image is that I have a bathtub like this one — although mine is empty just now.


The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl

Moriah sends this “in honor of adventures and my favorite girls who go postal…. I thought you might enjoy the daring likes of Supergirl.” I do, especially when I flip over the card and there’s Supergirl again, with a personal greeting!


Bubbling Over

It turns out that you can conserve water by decreasing the size of your bathtub — or, in this case, temporarily repurposing a washtub.


“Jester” by Olivia

Girlzoot’s first of hopefully many postcard contributions is an image of the first lady of pinups, Bettie Page, by the equally incomparable artist Olivia de Berardinis.


Three Wahines

This trio seem to be triplets, and they all have eyes for a soapy saxophonist. Musicians do tend to get the girls, don’t they?
