One day back in 1954, photographer Bunny Yeager snapped photographs of the then unknown Bettie Page posing in front of a Christmas tree. Those images, featuring the now-renowned naughty-but-nice appeal of Page, were sold to Playboy. Almost overnight, those photos catapulted both women's careers.
Whether we like it or not, South Florida is known for sun, beaches…and skin. Back in the 1950s, pin-up model Bettie Page posed for some of her most classic photos here.
