Weegee, Woman in Space Helmet Smoking a Cigarette, 1950s
In this photograph credited to Weegee, the famed crime photographer, we see him taking a night off from his usual grit for something more lighthearted yet equally intriguing; and we have the opportunity to peer into an evening brimming with the dreams of the coming space age, complete with beautiful women and smoke. It’s like a Heinlein novel encapsulated in one frame, and I can’t get enough of it.
