What it is:

Photo measuring approx. 3.75 x 6 inches.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


While I’m not a foamingly militant animal rights activist, I’ve long chosen not to wear fur for moral reasons.  That said, I’ll never forget the time, years ago, when a friend showed up for a night on the town wearing a floor-length sable coat.  Despite questioning the wisdom of such a garment, from a perspective of mere taste as well as humaneness, I’ll admit I tried it on.  And I’ll admit it felt extraordinary.  I don’t think this woman is wearing sable, but I’ll still bet she’s feeling pretty luxurious.

  1. That smile sure says she feels that way! /// I’m also against killing animals solely for their fur, but it seems like the coats, collars, &c. that are still around should be enjoyed. They are, after all, a bit of history.

  2. I’m not sure if it’s me, but her smile looks a little strange… her eyes aren’t looking at the camera (which I thought was the norm, but I could be wrong), and her hair looks messy even for that era. All around, it strikes me as a very “unique” photo. 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever come across one like this.

  3. Don’t laugh (at least not loud enough for me to hear). My first impression with the look on her face (smile and eyes) and the way the collar is turned up…it’s Dracula or should I say, Draculetta! Makes me wonder what she is thinking.

  4. It looks like a coat my grandmother had. I wouldn’t be surprised, given the texture, if the collar was dyed sheep skin.
