    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Snapshots, Circa 1955-1956. Twenty-seven total, all original prints with a glossy finish, three different sizes, each a candid shot depicting the star as she was out and about in NYC, sometimes in casual wear, other times in cocktail attire, many showing her surrounded by others (including business partner Milton Greene, photographer Sam Shaw, and super-fans Jimmy Collins and James Haspiel, to name a few); 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). (Please note there is black paper remnants on the back from when they were in a scrapbook and some have slight wrinkles but overall, all are still in very good condition.)
    3 1/2" x 5"; 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"; 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
