Color photo, c.1940s


This photo is currently up for auction on ebay (it's actually a slide unfortunately). I'd never seen it before but it appears to have been taken at the same time as this b&w photo that I have


It's interesting to see that his sweater is brown because I have always thought that the sweater he was wearing in the b&w photo was the same blue cardigan that he wore on the cover of this Illustrated magazine in 1947 (it even looks like the same shirt underneath) but evidently not. It looks like the same type of sweater but just a different color. Unless it's one of those things like the dress fiasco where it looks brown to one person and blue to someone else.

  1. It might well be blue. Zoom in on his eyes. They should be blue as well. I'm going to try to adjust it in PS.
