Slowly but surely, I’ve been scanning old family photos and restoring them. Judging from the style of the clothing, this portrait looks like it was taken in the teens. Also interesting is the woman on the left, who is wearing pince-nez glasses with a suspension chain which most likely connected to her ear so that they could be easily removed and not lost.
I believe the woman on the left was my grandmother, but I have no idea who the other woman is. A sister? A friend? And why did they go to a photo studio and have their portrait taken? Unfortunately, there is no one to ask, and no info on the back of the photo.
