Frank Sinatra (1915 - 1998) was one of the most important figures in popular music of the last century, with Elvis Presley and the Beatles. His career spanned 60 years, as a singer, actor and on television.

As a singer, his musical hits include classics such as Fly me to the moon, My Way or New York, New York. Sinatra particularly liked bossa nova and was a great admirer of Tom Jobim, they sang Garota de Ipanema together. He performed in a historic show in Brazil, in a Maracanã packed with 170,000 people, in 1980. Frank Sinatra also appeared in more than fifty films, including "A Step From Eternity" (1953), which earned him an Oscar for best actor. With intense political participation in the United States, Sinatra was accused in the early 1950s of being a member of the mafia and organized crime.

Jornal das Moças was a women's periodical published in the city of Rio de Janeiro, distributed in capitals across the country and in the main cities in the interior, which circulated in Brazil between 1914 and 1965. It had an average of 75 pages with texts and illustrations , dealing with subjects such as fashion, cinema, culinary recipes, cosmetics, etc.

"Luiz Fernandes (famous Carmen Miranda caricaturist), was a Brazilian who sent these photos from the United States to be published in the magazine, as other artists did" says Ricardo Lessa Bastos, journalist.

Produced at the beginning of his career, the beautiful and large writing by Frank Sinatra, and the reference to Christmas, for which Sinatra was a symbol, make this document a special piece in any collection.
