Nina’s “Sealine Woman” is a 19th century seaport song about sailors and prostitutes. The sailors would come into port (Charleston or New Orleans perhaps). Women of the pleasure quarters would be waiting, lined up dockside. Their dress colors signified the specific delights they offered. That is what the song is really about.

Milton Glaser - Nina Simone Tomato. Glaser: a Designer's Illustrator, an Illustrator's Designer? He is so varied and prolific, probably best said in his own words: 'Drawing is how I think.' Hard time finding an image that 'represents' Mr. Glaser (his 'Dylan profile is all over.)  I chose this one because I find it riveting, and as it's a somewhat 'unknown' example of his ability to visually capture ideas without resorting to a 'style' - even though it still feels like a 'Glaser'.
