Happy Valentine's Day!

From that same February 1952 issue of Esquire...

The Feb. '52 Esquire Girl has been added to my Pinups Flickr set.


  1. As to the first image, all I can say is 'woof'.

    As to the second -- the name NoBelt Boxers suggests that there were boxers that required a belt. Now that's just wrong.

    Hey Leif, could you tell us who the illustrator was for the Esquire piece, and do you know what medium he worked in?

  3. Sure thing, Kathryn; the Esquire girl is by Mauro Scali - but I'm afraid I don't know anything about him. Perhaps someone else can tell us?

    Just as a general note to all: The date, publication and artist I.D (if any) are always available if you follow the links I post back to my Flickr archives!


    L ;-)

  4. Oops! That wasn't Duncan ( my son) replying, Kathryn, that was me (Leif).
