Midwestern woman

Click here to view it larger.

What it is:

Photo (about 3.75 x 5.5 inches) mounted on a cardboard frame/backing (about 5.5 x 7.25 inches).

What I know about it:

Photographer is The Holdmann Photo Studio of Chicago and Milwaukee.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


I’ve mostly been happy with the template I selected for this blog.  But I think one of the main drawbacks is that it doesn’t let you click on the picture to enlarge it.  Subscribers can click on the photo in the e-mail to enlarge it, but casual visitors can’t.  I try to post photos at a size that can be easily viewed without overwhelming the whole post, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to see greater detail.  The other day I realized I can create a link to the location on WordPress where the image is stored so that people can view my scan full-sized if they want to.  Not that I create such enormous scans, but being able to enlarge the photo two or three times can make a difference.  So in an effort to make this blog as enjoyable and user-friendly as possible, I’ll try creating a link like that with each new post, as I did above.  Of course, that requires manually creating the link each time, which might get tiresome, so if people feel it’s not worthwhile, let me know and I won’t bother.  But if people like it, then I’ll keep doing it, and I may even try to go back and do it for some old posts.  Meanwhile, here’s another interesting face from out of the past for you to enjoy staring at.
