Soloday A Steaming Hunk of Confiscated Junk Operation Soloday and the Baltimore Bust
Note fan! A steaming hot pile of smut confiscated by the Feds in Baltimore, 1955. Arranged for show and tell, the Soloday operation was run by two smutsters who combined forces, one Herman Solomon, a photographer working on the fringe of Times Square, and William Daymont. Hence, Soloday. Solomon took pinup photos on the West Coast until he was arrested, he picked his hobby up again when moving to West 49th Street in Manhattan. He found his models in "night clubs and burlesque houses" according to Robert Blair, Assistant United States attorney in Baltimore.
After being busted, records indicated the team sent 291 shipments of photographs to some 50 cigar stands and novelty stores around the country.
