Drinking Pepsi Cola


Doesn't Heather look a lot like her mom in this photo?   I am pretty sure this one was taken by Rose Martin (or at least was part of her archive)

  1. I'm not getting this. Are you saying that this Linda's daughter Heather, or are you saying it's Linda? The caption sounds like you're saying this is Heather. Either way, I've never thought that Heather looked like Linda -- not as a young girl or as she looks now.

  2. I am saying this is Heather McCartney--Linda's daughter and I think she looks like her mum in this particular photo.

  3. I don't think this is Heather at all. It looks like an old yearbook photo of Linda. That Diet Pepsi paper cup she's drinking from is the style and design used in the early 1960s. If you look at other photos of Heather as she grew up, she has a different face, different eyebrows, just a lot of differences. I've always been surprised how little she looked like Linda, thinking maybe she looked more like her biological father, Melville See. I don't know. I'm more of the belief that this is an old photo from the early 1960s of Linda Eastman. Just saying...

  4. A tiny version of this photo of Linda Eastman was published in the 1968 book, Rock and Other Four Letter Words..., by J. Marks - which featured many photographs taken by Linda.

  5. Thanks for the verification. I remember that book when it was new. I was confident that this was not Linda's daughter Heather, but Linda herself in her pre-Paul years. There are plenty of photos of her daughter Heather at around the same age, and they're worlds apart in looks if you ask me. Shaun Weiss has this same photo on his Facebook page and captions it as Linda.
