Reading together

What it is:

Snapshot measuring 4.5 x 2.75 inches, with the remains of album mounts in the corners.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


One of the pleasures of looking at old photographs is imagining the stories behind them.  Some, such as this one, seem to invite speculation more than others.  Perhaps they are courting?  He dropped by to pick her up for a date.  She’s got her coat on, ready to go.  An excited parent said, “Oh, honey, wait, show him that thing you were reading earlier.”  The parent quietly grabs a camera.  The lovers are fully aware of this, but humor the parent by holding the pose, pretending not to notice.  Maybe?  Perhaps.
