Artwork of the Day: The Pale Blonde of Sands Street (by Earle Bergey)


by Earle Bergey

“Kate picked up a sailor in Brooklyn and was never the same again.”

There’s so many ways to interpret those words that I don’t know if I should be happy for Kate or scared. Luckily “just 12 hours for love” indicates that I should be happy for Kate, even if she was operating under a time limit. I just like how the blurb makes it a point to say that she picked up the sailor “in Brooklyn.” I guess the story would have been different if he was a Staten Island sailor.

This book and cover are from 1950. The artist is Earle Bergey.
