They were hidden above a closet door in the attic of a house I moved to in 1979. About 30 cards, 3 by 5 inches, each with a picture of a woman in various provocative poses. 1940s to 1950s porn, probably the stash of the old husband or the son who was decapitated when he drove his snowmobile into a barbed wire fence.


I wonder about the lives of these women. They posed, they cavorted for the camera in costumes that seem conservative by today's standards. Doubtlessly their mothers would have been mortified. What did they do with their lives? Could they still be alive, elderly women with a deep dark secret? Or might they be proud of their long legs and Rubenesque figures? What do you think?
