Edith Shain, the nurse in an iconic photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt, sits in front of a likeness of the image on the 64th anniversary of V-J Day in Times Square, New York in this August 14, 2009 file photo. Shain, who was photographed kissing a sailor in Times Square on August 14, 1945 to celebrate the end of World War Two, has died at the age of 91, her family said on June 22, 2010. The V-J Day picture of the white-clad Shain by photographer Eisenstaedt captured an epic moment in U.S. history and became an iconic image marking the end of the war after being published in Life magazine.
