Nicely dressed women sitting on rocks

Click here to see it larger.

What it is:

Three photos, ranging from 2.5 x 3.5 inches to 2.75 x 4.5 inches.  Remnants of having been mounted in photo albums are on the first and third ones.

What I know about it:

Written on the back of the third one is Jean @ Banff.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


In my post two days ago, I half-jokingly said I would do a post like this.  Well, what the heck, why not?.  I don’t know that I would post any of these individually, but I think they are kind of fun as a themed group.  The one in the middle strikes me as particularly odd.  The ones on either end just look like women taking breaks from hiking, but the woman in the middle looks strangely perched on a rocky outcropping, as if she thought she were going out to a nice dinner only to find herself the victim of a practical joke.  Perhaps this is the initiation/hazing for the new members of the local garden society or something?  🙂

  1. As soon as I saw these, I thought GIRLS ON THE ROCKS. Went to IMDB and found there was a movie with that title, a comedy released in 1962 that was produced in Cuba, allegedly starring “New York sexploitation actress Gigi Darlene.” What would the catch phrase be — “Sitting pretty has never been harder”?

    • That’s hilarious, I love it! Trust you to find that. Call me naive, but I’m startled by the very idea of a Cuban sex comedy. How, ahem, revolutionary! 🙂

  2. This post makes me want to start a high society garden club just to surprise neatly dressed and coiffed women with rocky outcroppings. 😉
    Seriously, she does look like she’s having fun, but it’s more a “let’s drive to tea…oh, hey, what about a photo over there.” The photo on the left I get, as fields are easy to come by. The right says mountain locale, which I also understand as either day trip or multi-day journey. But the third is enigmatic. Could be anywhere.
    Thanks for this one.

    • And thanks for commenting! I agree the ones on the ends are easier to understand/explain. The one on the right is Banff, which, though a mountainous Canadian national park, is enough of a tourist destination that this could easily be just a few steps off a road. But the one in the middle is a head-scratcher. It just seems like her position would have involved at least a little bit of climbing, for which she’s so improbably dressed. But you’re right, she appears to be having a good time, which is important for our enjoyment of the picture.
