There is no "Westley Street" in Ocean City, NJ. The Kelly's lived on Wesley Ave.

ZUBIAUR, thank you so much for sharing this picture. I've seen it before, but only in a smaller size. Do you have anymore big ones from this series? I think these were taken by Bud Fraker. He took so many sweet pictures of Grace in her Hollywood days.

Thanks Lily! And I agree with gracienic that the 1955 pic you posted is delightful! Wasn't that one taken by Bud Fraker, too?

Two articles about the last Barbizon Hotel, now "Melrose Apartments" propiety of D. Trump.

Article 1 in Efhemeral New York Blog.
Article 2 in nps.gov.

Some pics about the Barbizon in the 50s, when Grace stayed there.

The Grace Kelly´sister and nieces in 1955.

Artist Don Bevan holds his recently completed caricature of actress Grace Kelly up beside its lovely original prior to seeing the sketch installed among those of the other stage and screen "greats' on the walls of Sardi's Restaurant. Not even a caricature can dispel the charms of Miss Kelly, who received the New York Film Critics cublicle Award for her performance in The Country Girl.

In this photo: Grace Kelly, Peggy McMullen, Miss Ocean City of the Beach Patrol; Jack Kelly, Winner of the Diamond Sculls, Bunee Loux. (Ocean City, NJ. July 1947).
Grace was a little bit fat here, why? i thought she was slim all her life... Well, like all teenagers it´s normal to be a little bit fat during that years.

Here you have a pic of Ocean City in the last 20´s, when Grace´s parents buy their house. It was Ocean City in Grace Kelly´s childhood.

...And this is a pic of Ocean City now.

I love this thread and am constantly amazed at th ewonder photos and articles thank you all .. I saw a documentary about Grace on cable tv though not flattering about her private life pre Rainer the newsreels and photos were gorgeous. Her daughters have never achieved nor will they IMO a life of good choices which disappointing later are still life on life's terms. It is a constant amazement to me .... Grace was quite unique.

I have to disagree with you, there, Lily. I myself weigh well over 200 pounds and that is FAT. But this pic of Grace; she couldn't have been over 120 or 125 pounds! (What is that they say about the camera adding 10 or 20 pounds?) I think she looks skinny. If she'd toned herself, like her daughter Stephanie has, she would have been all muscle! Thanks for the pix, though, you're AWESOME!!!
