Pin Up's

Sorry for the extreme lateness, we have both been rather busy. 

Traditionally being seen on the sides of fighter plains during both world wars the Pin up started with models whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-up girls may be glamor models, fashion models, and actresses. The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos. Many pin-ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.'s during World War II. Other pin-ups were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. The genre also gave rise to several well-known artists specializing in the field, including Alberto VargasGil Elvgren, and George Petty, and numerous notable artists, such as Art Frahm.
Jamie 1- For those of you that don't like my
old lady pin up.

Jamie 2 - You never see what happens to the girls
when the planes are taken out of commission?

Jamie 3 - I think guys only get pin ups so they can
have a bash when there is nothing else at hand.
