Washington, D.C. “Girl sitting alone in the Sea Grill waiting for a pickup. ‘I come in here pretty often, sometimes alone, mostly with another girl, we drink beer, and talk, and of course we keep our eyes open — you’d be surprised at how often nice lonesome soldiers ask Sue, the waitress, to introduce them to us.’ ” Medium-format nitrate negative by Esther Bubley for the OWI.
