Candid photos of a four year old Marilyn Monroe with her first friend have emerged for auction.<br />
<br />
The vintage black and white photographs which were taken in 1930 feature a young Norma Jean Baker with a young boy of the same age named Lester Bolender who was placed in the same foster family as her. <br />
<br />
Monroe's first foster home placement was with the Bolender family and she and Lester were so close they became known as 'the twins'. <br />
<br />
The photos measure 4 1/2in by 2 7/8in and have notes on the back which read 'Marilyn Monroe age 4yrs'.
