“Reports of flying saucers have been received from all 48 states, D.C., Canada and Mexico…”
“Orville Wright, 75, co-inventor of the aeroplane, said the flying saucer craze was ‘propaganda dished up by the Government to support the curent Sate Dept. campaign to get us into another war.'”

The seller will even sell you a print (8×10 – 24×36) of the negative, and for $35 send you a CD of the “Photoshopped” image “that you can use for your reproductions.”

And the photographer was?

“Weegee Tries His Hand with the Flickers.” Perhaps a slight variant image was published on February 1947…

As Spring comes to the California mountains, lovely Goldwyn girl Ruth Vlamy is first to test the swimming pool at rustic Arrowhead Springs. Well, it looks warm enough to us!”
