Yet another Columbia gem

On this Veterans Day (Carole Lombard, above, is shown with servicemen she met at the Salt Lake City railroad station in January 1942 en route to Chicago and then her bond rally in Indianapolis), we have a second new Lombard still from Columbia in as many days. Take a look:

A gorgeous, pensive image of Carole, isn't it? This is an 8" x 10" original single-weight in excellent condition (the back is blank) from the George Smoots collection.

Bidding opens at $39.99; the auction will close at 11:29 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. To place your bid or find out more, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-in-STYLISH-PENSIVE-PORTRAIT-Original-Vintage-1930s-COLUMBIA-Photo/143418304477?hash=item216465a7dd:g:vWQAAOSweRpdq3Oq.

And to our veterans, regardless of your gender or ethnicity, thank you for your service in war and peace.
