Norma Jeane Dougherty (1945)

A nice photo of the former Norma Jean Mortensen Baker after her marriage to James Dougherty.  At the time this photo was taken at Capistrano Mission, she would have been working in a munitions factory, spraying airplane parts with fire retardant and inspecting parachutes.  Little did she know what life held in store for her.

  1. Compared to her other photos she looks happy.

  2. No matter what happens, what she was going through she always smiles for the camera.
