I had purchased some Pomegranate Publications© postcards a couple of years ago, but one among the few had haunted me. In a good way, that is.
I had to work with this unnamed girl. And so I did.
After composing “Ziegfield Moon”, I studied the text side of this postcard and found, through a search online, that Pomegranate had made a typo in attributing this photo to “Cheney Johnson”. The photographer’s last name is actually Johnston. And while Pomegranate had come by this image by way of the Motion Picture and Photo Archive, I could not find this particular girl within their online collection.
