Tamela D'Amico informed me of some recently published, but never seen before photos of Marilyn Monroe taken when she was just 24 years old and starting out in Hollywood.
Life.com discovered these lost and rare images taken of Marilyn in Los Angeles' beautiful Griffith Park~ the same park where a young Jean Harlow once posed nude at the beginning of her career.
Life photographer Ed Clark shot this series in 1950 and were supposedly taken for a Life cover that was never used. At the time of the shoot, Marilyn had just starred in The Asphalt Jungle.
There are 15 lovely pictures here! Also, on the 15th photo, click the link below the image for even more Marilyn!
