Thelma Todd In 1925


Original Double-Weight, Linen backed, glossy photo with borders of THELMA TODD from 1925.   She won a beauty contest in 1925 and became Miss Massachusetts.  She was spotted by a Hollywood talent scout in 1925 at the age of 19.  Her first film was in 1926.  So, this is one of the first promotion photos one will ever see of THELMA TODD and extremely RARE to find available.  A must have for the THELMA TODD collector and quite historical to see.
THELMA TODD was a grade school teacher before she went to work part-time in the modeling industry as a fashion model. This photo could be from either her school teaching days or her fashion modeling days in 1925.

On the back of the photo, handwritten lightly in pencil by a previous owner is "Thelma Todd ca 1925"
