What it is:

Photo measuring 4.5 x 2.75 inches.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


Despite the weird exposure issues around the edges, I think this is an interesting character study.  I take that to be a girl in a bathing suit, and she’s probably out enjoying a fun-filled afternoon by the lake or river with her older brothers or uncles or something.  But to my modern and out-of-context eyes it looks like she’s out with exactly the sort of suspicious types she’s always been warned away from.

  1. Looks like a deleted scene from “Paper Moon”!

  2. The men on either side of er look very, very alike. Could they be identical twins?

  3. She looks like a very young Jodie Foster…

  4. I want to know what they are all looking at! Is there a ghost on the left? It looks a bit superimposed.

    • I assumed they were looking at the camera, and that the fogginess on the left was just a problem with camera exposure or the developing process, but I’m amused by the idea that this is one of those old “ghost” pictures where we’re supposed to believe we’re witnessing a spectral haunting. 🙂
