Bettie Page (1923 – 2008)

Last week, fans everywhere mourned the loss of pinup queen, Bettie Page, who passed away at the age of 85. Propelled to stardom when she posed for Playboy as Miss January 1955, Page was one of the most photographed pin-up girls of the 1950s. Her iconic image has endured a legacy unlike any other, even after she stopped modeling in 1957 and turned to religion.

As popular now as she was in her heyday, Page’s playful likeness has come to grace everything from vintage erotica to playing card and country albums. Most of her photographs, which sometimes played on bondage themes, seem tame by contemporary standards, they were highly controversial in their day, raising eyebrows and earning Page a subpoena to appear before a senate committee on pornography though she never did.

Here are some vintage galleries featuring Bettie Page available in the AEBN system:
