A Marilyn Monroe likely never-before-seen black and white photograph by Edwin "Steinie" Steinmeyer, circa 1945
A later print (circa 1970s) with a glossy finish depicting the then-unknown model wearing a belted dress and, strangely, a pair of filthy leather gloves; shot when Monroe first started working at The Blue Book Modeling Agency when she was nineteen years old, but never used probably because she was still learning how to pose. It appears the photographer found his negatives years after Monroe's death and printed them up, realizing who she was.
