Photographer Anton Fury searches clues about pre-fame shots of Marilyn Monroe

In 1980, photographer Anton Fury paid two dollars at a Parsippany, New Jersey garage sale for a folder full of black and white negatives of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield (he calls it "probably my greatest garage sale discovery ever"). The photos have apparently never been published before, according to CNN, and their origins remain a mystery. Fury is working with Beverly Hills art dealer David W. Streets hoping to find out more about the photos, which they believe were taken in 1950. Streets says "I know they were taken here in Los Angeles...from the backgrounds that we see in the photos...You see Hollywood Hills, Hollywood 1950s architecture." He's hoping people see the photos and figure out more details, so pipe up if that pool looks familiar.
