1956~ Bettie Page photographed at Headley Farm, New Jersey by WEEGEE; Discovered after WEEGEE’s widow, Wilma Wilcox, bequeathed his archive to the ICP museum in 1993. WEEGEE (Arthur Fellig) and Bettie Page were friends, for years living only three blocks apart from each other just off Times Square, NYC. There is a story that WEEGEE once climbed into a bathtub fully clothed with Bettie hoping for a better photo until she literally kicked him out.
