A Look at Saint Patrick’s Day Pinups!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

As you are no doubt aware tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day. It is a national holiday in Ireland to honour Saint Patrick, the patron saint. However, what does Saint Patrick’s Day mean elsewhere? I can’t speak for everywhere, but here in Canada it means parades and green beer. Too much green beer consumed that is! ;0

I’ll be doing two posts in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day. First up, we have A Look at Saint Patrick’s Day Pinups!

  3. Wow — the first pic with the group, the one in the bottom right corner — just amazing! Looks like very early 20s or late teens. Just the type of stuff I’m interested in…
