Odd, I can't see the photo in your post but I can see it when I reply.

I hope they pay him royalties for using his image. I wonderd who she was. I don't have to anymore, apparently it was Edith Shain: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4799520

There's a status of them in San Diego at Mole Park:

Odd that the pic didn't show up.

It's funny, that's one of those images I've seen all my life, but I never knew that the two were unknown.

Apparently she wasn't. His claim is still "unofficial" I guess? I think he should go kiss her. She'd remember. :)

Thanks. Now I have Thomas Dolby in my head.

Anyhoo...

This photo is one that photo magazines used to often reprint, and I'd swear that Eisenstaedt said that the photo was posed. Granted, he may have asked two strangers to participate... but I do think that he staged the shot. For what that's worth.

That's not to say that he didn't ask these two to participate but never got their names.

But, really, it's hard not to imagine that if some stranger did this, that the woman wouldn't haul off and get medieval on the sailor's ass.

Then again, maybe that happened in the rarely seen image in the next frame...
