Black Dahlia: Gloria Swanson Photo Inscribed to Mark Hansen on EBay

gloria_swanson_mark_hansen

Here’s another item that is tangentially related to the Black Dahlia case: A photograph of Gloria Swanson inscribed to Florentine Gardens business manager Mark Hansen. Hansen was a small-time operator of movie theaters and news accounts of the Black Dahlia case describe his home (now demolished) on Carlos Avenue, where Elizabeth Short lived for a time, as being full of photos of movie stars such as this one.

Bidding on this item starts at $350 or Buy It Now for $499.99. As with anything on EBay, an item and vendor should be investigated thoroughly before submitting a bid.
