Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past



Today’s photo is a 20th century homage to femininity. In the golden age of Hollywood (1930s or so) the back lit photograph was the premier style of image for women, the “Glamour Shots” of their day. This particular image seems soft and lovely, while having a bit of a risqué sense, what with her dress coming off her shoulder. The cherry blossoms to the right add to the romantic effect and help create an ultimately lovely photograph.
