'...a bittersweet image'

We know that in the mid-1930s, Carole Lombard took some flying lessons and posed for several publicity photos near a plane (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/64412.html) -- images that cause a twinge of unease today, knowing her fate. One more such photo has since emerged:

It's p1202-1171, issued in early 1936. We also have the snipe, shown on the reverse:

As the seller of this photo notes, it's "a joyous and sexy, but bittersweet image since this radiant star would die in a plane crash."

The photo is 8" x 10", with slight creasing. Two bids have already been made, the highest at $13.49, and bidding will end at 4:10 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday.
