Around 1947, I lived in South Philadelphia and would go to a store on 16th & Ritner for my mother. On one occasion. I was sitting at the soda fountain & a man kept staring at me . Eventually, the manager or owner of the store come over & told me that the man was a famous artist & was painting my picture. I paid no attention to the name because I wanted to just get out of there. I was about 10 years old when this happened & the girl in the Rockwell painting
"girl with a black eye" does resemble me at that age.
