Retro image three of our series of vintage black and white images relates to one of my favourite places on earth – Palm Springs, California, USA – and certainly one of my favourite actresses of all time, Audrey Hepburn.
Looking elegantly cool, with accessorised pooch alongside, this image of Audrey comes from The William Anderson Photo Collection, courtesy of Bob Bogard, Palm Springs Art Museum. Gifted by Dorothy Anderson, the photograph was taken in 1959 but looks as fresh today as the day it was taken.
The area around Palm Springs, now called the Greater Palm Springs Oasis, has always been known as the playground for the rich and famous. With the clean, dry desert being just a two hour drive from the major studios, it was an obvious bolt-hole for the movie industry.
