“A couple of years ago, after one of my retro slide shows, this guy came up to me with a copy of one of my books, “Southern California in the ’50s”. It was opened up to the Los Angeles county fair page. He points to this 1955 photo of a dozen bathing suit-clad fair queens perfectly posed in a row on their backs with their legs up in the air and this guy standing behind them. He says, do you know who this guy is? He’s Bill Adrian; he’s the world’s oldest modeling agent, and you have just got to meet him.”
