Published May 15, 1954Mrs. Amory Carhart Jr. stands by a seaplane in the New York harbor as a distinctly different city skyline than what we know of today looms behind her. She wears a Fair Isle print linen dress while an unidentified man—a valet, presumably—unloads her Louis Vuitton luggage. Her statuesque stance is mimicked by the Empire State Building in the background.
