Vintage Photograph 2014.26

1940s picnic

1940s Picnic

This has to be one of my favorite vintage photographs found thus far. The scan here does not do the print justice. The composition and the natural light are just stunning. I would guess who ever took this photo was pretty skilled with the camera. So now let’s look at the photo a little closer. The woman on the left has her hair tied up and appears to be wearing a playsuit. If you look really closely at their hands you can see they were in the middle of a card game. Nothing was written on the back of this photo unfortunately, so we’ll never know their identities.

Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back story. See you all next week!
