83 years old Ninalee Craig  is speaking up about the real meaning of the iconic 1951 images "American girl in Italy". 

“Some people want to use it as a symbol of harassment of women, but that’s what we’ve been fighting all these years,” Craig said in a telephone interview in Toronto . “It’s not a symbol of harassment. It’s a symbol of a woman having an absolutely wonderful time!”

Back in 1951, Craig was a carefree 23-year-old who had chucked her job in New York and had a  six months vacation in Europe by her own; — very few women did that in the years following World War II.

Polaroid > Spectra / Image, ISO 640 > SX 70I’m not sure where you got that information from; but you are iccorrent. Spectra/Image cameras take Spectra (North America, consumer)/Image (Europe, consumer)/990 (Professional)/1200 (12 shots/cartridge, consumer) film, not SX-70.SX-70 cameras take SX-70/Time Zero film (discontinued since 2006, occasionally available on eBay for egregious prices; its ISO is around 75 or 100, if I’m remembering correctly), the currently-available Artistic Time Zero (available at Polapremium.com), as well as 600 and 779 (you have to use either a neutral density filter of some king on the film pack, or you have to do a camera modification to compensate for its fast speed).
