Gran and Granddaughter
A lovely snap of two ladies who were obviously really close. A Grandma and her Granddaughter perhaps? So sad that no one cared enough to keep it in the family.
I do love the older lady’s hairnet which seems to have tiny pearl beads over it, to match her stunning pearl necklace and of course the outrageous beauty spot of the glamour-puss young lady.
Nice! A great find that one. The beauty spot – what a concept for improving looks – pretty foreign in this age of cosmetic surgeons promoting perfection.
Yes, indeed, I hadn’t thought of it in connection with surgery before.
Great photo, they both look as though they got dressed up for the photo.
The mount/frame is beautiful too. Where did you find this one?
Hi Richard. Yes, they do look like they had something special even if they didn’t specifically get dressed up for the photo. I found this on the US Ebay site. The type of photo is called a photomatic and came out of the machine already in the frame. Sometimes the location of the booth was printed on the back and there was frequently a place to write details of the date and occasion. You can see the back of one of this type of photobooth photo here – https://photoboothjournal.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/pennyland-new-jersey-summer-1938/ and some details of the history of photomatic machines here- https://photoboothjournal.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/a-different-land-a-different-world/
Hello Katherine,thanks for the links, I had never heard of photomatics before : )
