Motherly love

I think it safe to say that no woman meant more to Carole Lombard than her mother, Elizabeth Peters -- and Carole always insisted that much of the beauty she possessed was inherited from the woman known as "Bess." This photo, which appears to be from 1932 or 1933 judging from Lombard's appearance (look at that smile!), is proof of what she was talking about. Bess would've been about 56 or 57 at the time this was taken.

This sepia picture is original, albeit trimmed, measuring 7 1/2" x 9 1/2"; it's deemed in good condition. There is some minor handling wear.

You can purchase this photo for $59.99. To buy it or learn more, visit
