Recent Goos

These goos were played a week ago.

Naomi Parker

Parker is the subject of the famous "We Can Do It!" painting, based on a photograph of her working at a factory. Until 2015, the model was widely understood to be Geraldine Doyle, who had claimed without evidence to be the model. Her claim was widely circulated, with each unverified claim citing another as the source, in what became a famous "woozle effect," when a false "fact" spreads via frequent repeating without a verified original source.
