NOTE: At an earlier point, there was an album questioning whether or not the photos were of Elise Ford. I don't have a copy of that album to reference here. jane

Alas, not Elise Ford. She’s too young.

Billie Ford was mentioned in 1928 with another ACJ’s models: Catherine Dale Owen, Dorothy Knapp, Helen Clive:
