Woman with interesting purse

What it is:

Real Photo Post Card measuring a bit less than 3.5 x 5.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.  (I can’t find any of the distinctive marks or codes that sometimes identify the post card paper’s manufacturer and can sometimes help you date the photo.)

Comments:

I’m guessing 1920s.  That’s my guess based on the clothes and purse, but I’ve been wrong before.  I’m sure there’s a name for that type of bag/purse, but I’m too tired to look it up right now beyond a quick unsuccessful internet search.  I think that as interesting as the purse itself is the fact that she’s decided to pose with it.   Also, it seems she’s wearing a wristwatch, which I understand became popular in the 1920s.

  1. I would agree that it’s early 1920’s. The story I’ve heard about wristwatches is that soldiers in WWI made them popular.
