Annette Kellerman: lifelong performer
Annette Kellerman's love of colour is obvious from her pink outfit in this beautifully executed promotional photograph. The vertical lines in the backdrop add to the drama of Kellerman's pose.
It's not known when, why or by whom this photograph was taken, however the look and colour profile of the photograph suggests Kellerman was older. Evident in the shot is the physical fitness and performing prowess that she maintained well into her 80s.
She died in 1975 at the age of 89 in Southport Queensland.
