Carmen Fett, 1944

Photo by Rosa Morgan
Carmen lived at the houseboat and worked at Boeing in 1944 while her husband, the surrealist painter Bill Fett, was in Mexico. She hated her factory job and spent evenings on the lounge chair recuperating, no doubt being ministered to by Rosa. Her note on the back of this photo enjoins her friends not to show this picture of "esta horrible mujer" to anyone, especially Bill.
