LIFE magazine just picked up where they left off back in 1948, when they profiled Kitty West (akaSylvas, the original Oyster Girl). Including the notorious original photos that made her a national sensation and current pics from when LIFE returned to catch up with Kitty. Big thanks to Rick Delaup. Check it out!
