Girls at a Woolworth’s Perfume Counter, 1947

S Kubrick for Look 1947 MNY287533

This photograph was taken in 1947 by Stanley Kubrick, when he was a staff photographer for LOOK magazine in New York. LOOK no longer exists, nor does Woolworth’s. I wonder where these two girls are today, and whether they still wear perfumes, and if so, which ones.
