Recognize Anyone?

Summer, 1941. That's Lorrin "Whitey" Harrison in the black shirt, and we're pretty sure it's Preston "Pete" Peterson in the foreground with the slicked back hair, strumming away. Oh yeah, and we think that may be a young Norma Jean Baker, with the flower in her hair (although that would mean she would only be 15 when this shot was taken. But then again she did marry the first time at the age of 17). From the Jack Huff collection.

Toomy Zahn(surfer) first met Norma Jean Dougherty around September 1946. They surfed together at Malibu, sometimes tandem. They had a relationship but when Darryl Zanuck(FOX studios head) found out he fired both of them from their FOX studio contracts. Zahn shipped out to Hawaii.They split around June 1947. There is a colour shot similar to this photo, taken by Zahn.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
