This lady is wearing a wrist watch

Postby yumyum46 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 8:06 pm

I'm trying to date this photo as it may give me a clue as to who it is. I was examining the dress as it looks rather crude (especially the buttons) when I noticed that she was wearing a wrist watch! In fact I wonder if the whole point of the picture is the watch as she seems to have her hand with it on held rather prominently? Does any one if this is likely or an aprox age for the photo?

I can't help with dates I'm afraid but the lady appears to be holding something between the fingers of her left hand too, could this be another watch, possibly a fob as there doesn't seem to be a strap. If this is so perhaps the photo is for advertising.

Hopefully someone else can shed more light.

Hi there,

I have a photo that looks exactly like that and even the same location. Mine was taken in 1927. So could be around then. Hope this helps you place who she is.

thanks :)
