That last image seems to be a "Pin-Up" named Alice Denham.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/19/books/review/DErasmo.t.html

Quote:
Alice Denham, who was a smart, pretty, rebellious college student in 1951, never doubted which kind of girl she wanted to be. As soon as she could, she headed straight for New York City, where she eked out a living as a model and pinup girl.

In case you haven't guessed already, it was, of course, an ambitious publicity stunt.
Workers for Europ Assistance IT, an insurance group based in Italy, had come to the street early in the morning to construct the fake submarine.
The installation was erected to promote the firm's 'Protect Your Life' campaign.
