    Hi Claudia!!!!!!!!!! We're glad you found it too :smile: Hard work... me? Um, if I'd done any hard work everything that had been posted would have been moved by now but thanks! Honestly, the endless ACJ photos just baffle me. I can't seem to find a way to organize them and repost them here. Perhaps some Geritol?

    So lovely to see you!

    Joe, I'll have to track down the lovely Mz. Claudia (Memento Mori / diedremontague) and have her do more more more! So nice of you to offer to send her some.

    I didn't realize this was also Dierdre from Multiply till I started moving albums. I have others of hers to move also from another album she posted on there.

    Just goes to show how hard it was to find anything there! Well, for me at least.

    These are gorgeous, Claudia! Thanks so much... oh dear, I'm totally brain dead. I know who the first one is but can't think of who at the moment. I'll add it if/when Oh I just remembered. I think. It's Jacqueline Schalley. I'll check on that later today. If I'm wrong hopefully someone with a better memory will come by before then and correct me.

    Is your Naomi Johnson on Jerry's site: http://www.doctormacro.com/ ? Or did you just get it from there and then colorize it? Lovely! Jerry is a great guy and I'm sure he'd love to have a copy for his site.

    Hi!! i found it in tumblr but checking out on google images , the only hi res version is from doctormacro so yes, Its from that site. Credit for them!! the scan is fabulous! . About sending the image there, i dont know if he will allow to upload it with the watermark. I ve seen lots of images colorized from that site on sale on ebay and etsy and i dont want that happens :sad:

    About the unknown model you re right, Its Jacqueline Schalley! (acording nestegg auctions)

    Thank you very much!! pity there are not more hi res images of her. I d love to colorize more!

    I guessed right for a change, thanks Claudia :smile: Sadly, that is the case with most of the photos Jerry puts up on his site. I see them for sale all over ebay and etsy - colorized and not colorized, just as they download from there. I used to send nastygrams to those sellers but there are just way too many of them. I had a link up for him on Multiply that said not to buy what is given freely there. Jerry puts so much money, time and effort into that site that it really stinks that so-called "people" steal and make money off of the work he and his contributors do. I'll add a link here for that also now that I'm thinking about it.

    The only other larger sized image I have of Ms. Schalley:

    Jaqueline Schalley_ACJ 20a was zr 429b_johnny.orig.otto.id.jpg

    Maybe that will be good for you to work with?

    No problem :wink:

    In the meantime, a new one. Says its Anastasia Reilly but for me, it doesnt look like her.

    Thanks so much for adding the lost and posting the new! They're all so lovely. Hmmm... Anastasia Reilly. I still have her as Anastasia but who knows... I'm so far behind with names :smile: If it's been changed hopefully someone will let us know.

    Thanks and you welcome, it wasnt a hard work to do it :wink:

    Here a few more i did today

    Unknown ZG

    And Agnes Franey (thanks Jane for the image! i found it in the old group :smile: )

    Ps: im very curious about the supposed Anastasia Reilly. I v seen other images of her and the chin and face doesnt match with this one. In fact, this one looks like a young a brunette Patricia Arquette :biggrin:

    :eek:o, love too! Hm, I feel like I should know who the first one is but alas... old age :smile: How about posting the one named Anastasia in the Photographers group with a question about it? I don't see that I ever got a copy with the back of the photo showing. I'm just too frazzled with stuff to deal with the years of ACJ IDs. Just ask there with a subject like:'

    ACJ: Question about "Anastasia Reilly" Alfred Cheney Johnston photo

    And hopefully one of the experts will show up and say something. I'm not in that bunch :smile:

    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work,

Some ZG colorized images
