Little Edie applying make-up at Grey Gardens, 1976.

On July 26, 1972 a New York Daily News photographer captured images of Grey Gardens under Onassis-funded repair. He also stumbled upon Edie's sadness at the burial of Champ, one of the original cats. "His mind was so brilliant. He could read thoughts and send them back. Mental telepathy." - Little Edie.
