A Toothsome Pair

From the lovely oddity department: Eleanor Roosevelt and Lillian Parks, White House maid and proud author of My Thirty Years Backstairs at the White House, in a deaccessioned newspaper file photo from 1961.  Check out weird caption note about other White House workers 'pledging to refrain' from memoir-writing.   And all this while JFK and Marilyn were no doubt frolicking in situ.

ER--gor bless 'er-- seems to be relishing all the scuttlebutt.
