Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Face Time, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group. this would make a wonderful contribution to facetime.
Wow! The old black & white photos that we mostly see of this era don't convey the beauty of people in that time. She's a beauty. I wish women today took care to dress up like this before they go into work.
Thanks for putting up these photos, they are beautiful. I love this photographer's work.
Unusual wooden pin with red lips, might be african or carribean? It just reflects the red on her lips as well and against the red vest looks great.
@ bf53490 -- click on the tag "Wooden Pin" to see other workers wearing this same pin. This woman is also in this set-up:
She reminds me of the photos of my great-grandmother when she was young.
Our GREATEST generation in full color! My grandparents passed a couple of years back and I found a few pictures of my grandfather in his 1st Cavalry Division US Army Uniform and my grandmother kept to the day near her pillow from WWII. These pictures are a treasure!! Thank you so much for sharing them.
