London, November 26 (ANI): A rare school photograph showing a fresh-faced Marilyn Monroe is to go on sale.

The 15-year-old, who was then known as Norma Jeane Baker, appears in a panoramic shot of the whole class year at Ralph Waldo Emerson Junior High School in Los Angeles.

It was taken in the summer of 1941, just a few years before she became a model, actress and global sex symbol.

The photograph, which measures 8 x 24 inches, is expected to sell for up to 1,500 pounds when it goes under the hammer at the auction in Stockport, Cheshire, next week, the Mirror reported.

Also up for sale at the same auction are nine Christmas cards sent by Prince Charles and his then-wife Diana, Princess of Wales.

The cards, which were sent over successive years, feature photos of young William and Harry growing up, include festive greetings and are signed by the royal couple with festive greetings. (ANI)
