September Morn—Surf Style

A two page photo-spread from Laff magazine ("The Humorous Magazine") featuring Muriel Voorhees, from February, 1952. Laff combined humorous cartoons and comisc with pin-up style photographs of scantily clad women.

September Morn—Surf Style

The painting "September Morn" has had its day. Times change and out modern generation has become one of streamlining. Many things, including girls' figures, are getting better and better. Muriel Voorhees, Hollywood dancer and actress, is a comely, modern "September Morn" who loves water.

Captions for the photos:

  • Lovely Muriel Voorhees, an up to date "September Morn," looks cautiously in all directions. The beach is deserted, so it is safe for her to take a salt water bath.
  • Muriel's smiles are sure proof of her reaction to the good, clean ocean. It's cold and invigorating!
  • The warm sunshine above and the cool water below. A perfect combination for a refreshing afternoon.
  • Many girls enjoy relaxing in the bathtub at home with a bonafide bubble bath, but Muriel prefers the natural bubbles and frothy foam of an ocean dip. She's a vivacious and energetic "September Morn."
