These luscious color photographs of women in the 1940s reside in the National Geographic Creative website where you can license high resolution images. Glamourdaze honed in on two staff photographers whose stunning color images of young women taken in America and Great Britain during the 1940 war years evoke a real authentic image of the era. They could have been snapped yesterday.

B Anthony Stewart, who hailed from Virginia was a master of composition and is now considered one of the greatest of National Geographic  portrait photographers .My personal favorite is the iconic image of two young women relaxing above the Cliffs of Dover in England.
Jay Baylor Roberts, a former Marine, was chief photographer for both the Washington Post and New York Times before joining the National Geographic in the 1930s. His images evoked a similar US pride to the artwork of Norman Rockwell but with a more photo journalist style.

This author has a personal collection of National Geographic stretching back to the 1920s. They are my pride and joy. “Life in Color” was the ethos of this magazine. Over the decades we are invited through a looking glass in to another world and era and the quality of the color photography and printing in particular makes this possible.
