a Feast-your-eyes treat:       
        Mamie Van Doren Photos

These were made on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, or maybe on Thanksgiving, 1956.

I expect to find the remainders' originals, so I didn't bother to clean up the prints' scans

It seems Miss Mamie closed her personal page and absconded to Facebook, where she has an active presence and many followers:
