I bought this page from an old photo album on Ebay recently. The seller’s description was none too flattering to the subject, which was what attracted me to look at the listing in the first instance. From notes on the back of the page (which has two dilapidated box brownie snaps still attached), I know this lady’s name is Esther, she had a sister or friend called Ethel and that these photos were taken around 1936, possibly in West Michigan USA.
I love Esther. She may not be a classical beauty but she has style, poise and a serene dignity that I find very appealing. She obviously had a thing for photobooths, another reason to admire her!
