A teenage Shirley Temple in a fur coat

Teenage Shirley Temple

A 16 year old Shirley Temple photographed in 1944 with William Lyon Mackenzie King, the Prime Minister of Canada. I don’t think I’d ever seen a ‘grown-up’ photo of her before, wasn’t she gorgeous?  I wonder why she didn’t make it to be a grown-up  movie star…

    Like you, I’d only ever seen her as a child and never as a grown up, and didn’t she grow up beautiful.

      No, I guess she was likely to be beautiful, but it’s nice to see her all grown up isn’t it?

    You have to post her wedding photo – about 6 bridesmaids all in different pastel colours. She was living the dream! But I think she became a diplomat of some kind?
