Around 1943. Part of a fashion shoot to keep up the morale of the troops and their girls. The caption on the back of the photo reads:
The problem of what to take on a week-end visit to husband or beau at camp is solved by Columbia’s Marguerite Chapman. Marguerite decided to hold a home fashion show for friends the afternoon she packed her bags for a trek to the San Diego Marine Base to visit Bill Lundigan. That’s the jacket of her satin cocktail suit she’s holding up.
