What it is:

Photo measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  There is a lot of glue and black paper stuck to the back from having been mounted into a photo album.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


This one always stops me.  My initial thought tends to be that her stocky body and mannish face almost make her look like a drag queen, while her dress and hat aren’t in a style that particularly flatter her.  But then I realize that standing in the sun, striking a carefree pose in her spring-fresh outfit, she may have never felt lovelier.  And somebody with a camera cared enough to capture her as is.  So who the hell am I to judge?

  2. Or as the well-worn phrase reminds us “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
