What a beautiful lady and what a beautiful portrait of her.
Totally agree Dave. I think she was only 17 there and the original photo was taken in Alexandria, Egypt.

Thank you so much Fred. Back then it wasn’t customary to smile in photos but I agree she did look rather sad but in a beautiful way somehow.

Ladies like this could teach the girls of today a thing or 2 thats a fact they think the world owes them…..
They talk about woman being strong now, but I think back then they were even more so with their resilience and fortitude. The world owes us nothing and we have to earn its respect.
yes i think they just did it in those days and didnt waffle on about it lol
Wow! Thank you Stephanie! It’s a big surprise! :)) My grandmother would be greatly honoured!
