    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Small Black and White Publicity Photographs, Circa 1947. Six total, all original prints with a glossy finish, each depicting the then-starlet in typical of-the-era poses; also included is a postcard featuring a black and white image of MM and others on the front next to text reading in part "Official / Souvenir / Post Card / Postmasters / Convention / Los Angeles / October 12-16, 1947" -- evidently some PR stunt poor MM was forced to do in her salad days; consigned by the family of Aviv Wardimon (see two previous lots). (Please note one image has a slight 1" tear on the top margin.)
    5" x 4"; Postcard: 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"
