Picture Post


“Recently I found an image for a magazine called “Picture Post”. On
the cover of the November 1956 is Shirley Bassey (“The Girl From Tiger Bay”).

She must have been really popular to wind up on the cover of a
magazine at such an early time of her career. I tried to fix up the
image, but that was the best that I could do.”
