Cover illustration by George Quintana (1902-1957), who specialized in cheesecake covers for pulp magazines until “coming out” as an artist, at which time he made the move to beefcake. There’s a nice bio here.
Two photos by British photographer “Sasha,” a.k.a. Alexander Stewart. Above, Myrna Loy reads the tea leaves in 1928. And below, Mimi Crawford (Forde-Pigott), Countess of Suffolk, gazes into my soul, with thanks to the Photographs Collection of the National Portrait Gallery.
