X MARKS THE SPOT, Perhaps the Other Is Simply Named Dot


This week's Sepia Saturday said amateur theatrical production to me and I knew exactly what shot I would contribute.

I have no information about these lovely ladies. My best friend and I have speculated that the one with the dots coming out of her head might be Rosa, but we just can’t be sure. Now, only folks who have been here for a long time will recognize the name Rosa. For those who know nothing about her simply click on the word “Rosa” in the labels below.

Whatever is going on, let’s hope there were tea and cakes to be had after the shot was taken.

  1. It is only when you click and enlarge and see the faces and expressions that you really appreciate what a wonderful image this is.

    1. Oh yes, I wish I had deconstructed it, but I was too tired by the time I find which folder the image was in. I may still have to do a deconstruction in order to feature each woman because there are so many expressions.

  2. It looks like Pierrot and Coumbine. Some interesting costumes.

    1. Yes, that's it. I knew the one was Pierrot. Now what gives with the jack-o-lantern?

    1. I'm guessing there was quite a bit of giggling from certain members of the group. Others, not so much.

  4. I wasn't familiar with Rosa, so I looked back at her other photos. They are quite an interesting bunch.

  6. Excellent find.

    Lots of mystery here.

    Rescuing an old photo like this is so rewarding.

  8. Enjoyed seeing your past posts about Rosa. I think this young woman does favor her. Many unique & interesting hats in this pic. The fourth lady on the back row on the right appears to be wearing a butterfly hat. Agree with Kristin, the lady in the back row second from left reminded me of the Statue of Liberty also.

  10. I hope you will do a post deconstructing this photo. It's fascinating with all the costumes and expressions.

  11. Could it possibly be a hat making contest? Or graduation from a millinery academy? Great photo.
