Birthday Girl: Saint Gertrude

Seen here looking uncharacteristically girlish (not to mention be-foundationed), Miss Gertrude Stein. Not, it must be admitted, the most convincing of Gibson Girls, but she did grow into a trademark look that suited her far better.

138 today, and still going strong strong strong.


  1. I recently watched Midnight in Paris, mostly for its fantasy scenes of 1920s Paris. Kathy Bates gives a fine turn as the great Gertie!

  2. Fabulous, if ample, hourglass. The wonders of whale bone.
