1941 Marilyn Monroe signed junior high school photo (as Norma Jeane Baker)
Offered here is a special piece of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. An original panoramic photo of the Ralph Waldo Emerson Junior High School summer class of 1941 featuring their most famous graduate, the 15 year-old Norma Jeane Baker. She's situated in the the sixth row from the top, towards the right side. The back of the photo has been signed by many of the students, including the young Norma Jeane. In green ink the future superstar wrote: "To a super super kid - (a darn cute one at that!) Norma Jeane Baker / S' 41". The photo measures 8" x 24.5". It displays some light vertical creasing from previously being rolled. Minor foxing in a couple of spots (not affecting the Norma Jeane Baker signature or inscription). Generally clean. One of the better examples of this scarce photo to surface. Extremely rare signed by Monroe.
