Rare photo of Hetty Kelly

Currently up for auction on ebay (at a ridiculous opening bid) is this lovely, never-before-seen photo of Chaplin's first love, Hetty Kelly, probably taken during her visit to New York in 1911, three years after her very brief romance with Chaplin.


  1. Such an adorable outfit, So many new (to me) wonderful photos recently Thank you.

  2. Wow, no wonder he adored her. What a beautiful young lady.

  3. She was so pretty. A fresh-faced beauty. I see why a 17 year old boy grew up and never forgot her.
