Five women in the shade

What it is:

Photo measuring 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


I don’t know who these women are, where they are located, or what they are doing.  The scene looks European to me.  In fact, it has the feel of a tourist photo about it.  But I could be completely wrong.  It was among a bunch of assorted photos, and I haven’t found another that would give it context.  Does the table behind them indicate a celebration, or perhaps that they are hanging out in front of a dining establishment?  What do we make of the flowers at their feet, one bouquet in a sort of jug and the other in a glass water pitcher?  Are these women waiting for something, or just whiling away the time?

  1. Interesting. They look like 5 sets of Russian dolls. They each could easily fit at least two other women inside them! The third and fourth look to be sisters. Maybe they all are?
