Who Were They? is going to speed forward in time and look at some 20th century photos for a while. I bought the photo above because I rarely see old photos of black people. This lady wore a nice hat and wore her coat during the sitting for this photo. It was a photo postcard, with the edges cut away, so all that remains is a 2″ x 3″ section from the middle. The area for postage was removed, which would help us date the postcard better, but I will put this in the 1910s based on the hairstyle and hat.
