Another studio portrait taken of my grandmother and a relative/friend that I restored over the weekend. As I zoomed in to fix the creases and dust specks, I noticed that she was wearing pince-nez with a chain attached. These particular types of glasses have a hair pin on the other end of the chain, and were popular from 1900 to the teens. I don’t care what people say about their layers of uncomfortable clothing – they had style! The original scan of the photo is behind the cut.
