Young Marilyn Monroe sitting on a bundle of hay while cuddling a dalmatian dog

Here's a photo from Marilyn Monroe's early modeling days, nicely dressed and accompanied by a canine friend in the countryside!

Another beautiful photo of a fresh-faced Norma Jeane from her early modeling days, the snap above was taken by Potter Hueth in 1945 and was reportedly one of the pictures he showed to Emmeline Snively, head of the Blue Book Modeling Agency in Los Angeles.

Potter Hueth also worked with the future Marilyn Monroe alongside Bob Farr from 1945 to 1946, and the two photographers took some shots that were credited to both of them (Farr-Hueth). You can find more photos taken by Hueth from this period in this album.

All information for this post were sourced from The films of Marilyn Monroe on Facebook.
