One of the most famous photographs ever published by Life Magazine was shot in Times Square on V-J Day, taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt. The kiss from another angle (pictured here), photograph taken by Lt. Victor Jorgenson. Some dozen ex-sailors have claimed to be the amorous seaman and at least two other former nurses have identified themselves as his partner.
