Nowadays it would all be completely retouched anyway, I suppose. Or did they retouch then? Only by hand I guess. No photoshop, no digital images.

Good stuff anyway.

Kath said...

I just love these when you post them! Really pretty. I suddenly have a craving for toothpaste... :o)

PI said...

andrewm: they could only retouch black and white. Leo Aarons an American photographer was one of the first to retouch colour. I met him once and he showed me how he did it - by hand.

Kath: not to eat I hope:)

Drama Queen said...

Lovely teeth. How perfect are you?

SpanishGoth said...

What's wrong with eating toothpaste? You're just trying to wheedle out of responsibility because you created the desire ;-)

PI said...

DQ: about as perfect as my title ie not at all!

Spanishgoth: reminds me of the temptation in wartime. There was one particular spearmint flavoured one.

Remeber the Colgate ring of confidence?

fjl said...

So you had beautiful teeth then ;-)

PI said...

Doc: yup!

fjl: 'fraid not.

Kim Ayres said...

Once I get this tooth fixed it will be MacLeans for me for ever more!

PI said...

Kim: oops! we seem to be using Colgates

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

But I can't see an imperfection anywhere...

PI said...

Zinnia: you need the full frontal. OK I was slightly paranoid. I was always afraid of disappointing people so got the criticism in first.

rashbre said...

excellent.

PI said...

Hi Rashbre!

Keith said...

When I saw the original advert many years ago I changed from SR to Macleans all because I liked that picture. I still use Macleans now!

PI said...

Keith : please don't tell me you use Pin Up Home Perm:)

Here from Michele's this A.M.
I remember this Ad...at least I think I do! You really had a fabulous career Pat...It's wonderful to see all these pictures and read the history of it all....!

PI said...

Thank you Naomi. I was a small fish in a big pond. My heart wasn't totally in it - I had other fish to fry. Sorry about that:)

panthergirl said...

Here via michele today, Pat!

PI said...

Thanks Panther girl!

Guyana-Gyal said...

Well, they sure looked perfect in the pic.

You looked like you were having fun too, Pat.

PI said...

GG : that would be down to a photographer with whom you felt sympatico!

Keith said...

Pat, I can't use a perm. I'm bald. I lost it all in the depression, not the Wall Street one; my personal one!

PI said...

Keith:XOXOXOXOX
