A pair of pics and a puckish panel

Today's entry touches a few bases, opening with this Carole Lombard item on eBay. It's two 8" x 10" portraits of her (set up to look like one because both are vertical poses, Neither are original vintage shots, but both show Carole looking stylish.

Then, an illustration that ran 85 years ago yesterday, Jan. 7, 1935. Readers of this syndicated feature must've been amused that Powell and ex-wife Lombard were part of this panel. Carole -- known in the press for her fashion sense -- may not have been pleased to have the world think she was this extravagant. Conversely, Powell's puckish sense of humor is on display here...and one wonders whether his ex was part of the collection.
