The photos that Charles West took of Bettie were not taken with the intention of them ever being released to the public, they were just Bettie posing for her boyfriend.
So, there’s a new-ish Bettie Tumblr that is pretty much going through my blog and re-posting the pictures I’ve posted, even the same photosets! Why not just REBLOG!?
In ‘Bettie Page Reveals All' Bettie mentions that Irving Klaw had a pair of heels especially for Bettie that only she was able to wear because they fit her and she could walk and dance in them. All I could think was “my goodness, I've seen those shoes in person!” It was all very emotional for me.
