Mystery Monday- Nameless Faces
A rather more glamorous example from the same collection is depicted below. I can make more of an educated guess as to who she may be, but still not be certain. While this young lady certainly has the colouring and bearing of a Jacobs, and the address of the studio at the bottom indicates a member of the New York branches, I can think of at least four girls (young Henry's first cousins on his mother's side); sadly, unlike others in the collection, this photograph has not been labelled on the back. One can but wonder if that fabulous muff was hers.
Finally, another magnificently, if somewhat unconventionally dressed young woman. Once again, she is probably a Jacobs girl, though more likely a London one. She appears to be wearing a wedding ring, but alas, this does not really help identify her specifically. These photos are still fascinating glimpses into my ancestors' past but goodness, if you recognize anyone, please let me know!
