Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Snapshots, 1955. Seven total, all original prints with a glossy finish, each depicting the star wearing a lamé dress and a white fur coat as she sits in the lobby of The Hotel 14 in NYC while others surround her (including Milton Berle); from the personal collection of James Collins, one of the 'Monroe Six' -- the group of young kids who followed Marilyn around NYC so often that the star ended up knowing them all by name and allowing them special access to her (like letting them take countless pictures and giving them numerous autographs); Collins recalls that on this night he waited for MM and her group (which included her date, Milton Berle) to come out of the Copacabana night club which was located upstairs in the same building as The Hotel 14 at 14 East 60th Street in Manhattan -- his patience paid off when he was able to snap these great candid photos of the star as well as pose next to her in one (top row, center). (Please note there is black paper remnants on the back from when they were in a scrapbook.)
    4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
