This young woman in the prime of life looks free and fresh though in formal dress. I hope she was going somewhere that fulfilled her dream and is shown in a photo she and her family loved!

Thanks for the fashionista language, Jerry. Great to know what people of her era think about in these terms. (Chuckle: I do know you're not of her era!)

Wow! Now that’s a dress. Very elegant! Alice’s face is full of so much personality. I can see a row of homes behind her. A lovely photo. Thanks, Roberta, for sharing this with us.

I thought so too, Pip, but wouldn't the house part of the image be Her home? or simply another fine background?  Fresh with paint in a thick weather coating makes the photo a standout too!

If you look just past her left arm (her left) you can see a row of houses along the street.

AH, YES--The row houses are very faint. Thanks for pointing them out!!

So glad you enjoyed it, Susan! --I wish the young lady was in my family lines, but no.

When I learn how to scan photos, I have some interesting ones from SW Texas, where (I think) our fashion model would never go!
