The Albino Woman Here is an old cabinet card photograph of an albino woman posing with eyes closed (likely because the flash hurt her eyes) that was taken at the J.S. LoBeau Photography Studio located at 167 Blue Island Avenue in Chicago, Illinois sometime during the 1890's or slightly earlier. I don't know who she was but there is no doubt that she was a carnival or "freak show" performer. by haley

Marilyn Monroe, "The Last Sitting", by Bert Stern, 1962  At age 36, taken 1 week before her death. During her final photoshoot before her death, Bert Stern created some stunning photographs of Marilyn Monroe. However, on the photos that Marilyn didn’t like, she smeared her red lipstick over the negative images to deter them from being published. After her death, Stern developed those photos and they came out more beautiful than ever. by Sevil Sevdiyar

The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.” by beth

Faith Bacon, 1931 A popular burlesque dancer whose star faded. In 1956, she was walking calmly down the 4th story stairs of her hotel when she suddenly opened a window. A friend grabbed at her skirt, but she tore away and jumped. Her body landed on the roof of a one-story saloon next door. She was 46 years old. Her friend told reporters that Bacon “wanted the spotlight again. She would have taken any kind of work in show business.” by erika

Beautiful Marion Davies was one of the great comedic actresses of the silent era. She was also known as the longtime mistress of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Their life was mirrored in the film 'Citizen Kane'. Because she spoke with a slight stutter, Marion's voice had to be retrained when sound arrived to movies. But with her usual persistence she did well, and made several memorable comedies and musicals during the 1930's. by julianne
