Actress/bombshell Jayne Mansfield is seen here posing for a promotional photo with the staff of radio station WPLO, one of Atlanta's main outlets for rock and roll music in the early 1960's. I'm not by any means sure of this, but the photo may have been taken when Jayne was in town in 1963 to perform her burlesque act at The Copa, located on Ponce de Leon Avenue (between Peachtree St and Juniper St). Also part of the act was Mansfield's husband, Mickey Hargitay, a Hungarian-born body builder who won the Mr. Universe title in 1955. Hargitay and Mansfield are the parents of actress Mariska Hargitay. Scroll down to see some publicity promoting their 1963 appearance at the Copa. Thanks to reader Charles Burcher for sending in the Jayne Mansfield photo.
