Give me a break, ladies! - 1925

By HobbitDave
One last renovated motoring photo, restored in iPad Pro 12.9 with Photo Editor.
Begs for an interesting story, please feel free to add what you think 🙂
The song by Chas and Dave - Youve got more rabbit than Sainsburys - comes to mind.

In those days smoking was the norm for many men and sometimes a bit of a statement.
Photo is from 1925, pencil date on the back, so this would have been 95 years ago. Hope you like to see it.

In the next few days I expect more folk will be self-isolating to stay well; nice that there are plenty of regulars uploading to EPZ and we are fortunate that we can all share and enjoy photos around the world in this way 🦋🕊🦋

1. a great restoration! !
2. It is about those ladies---their expressions are so very amusing!
3. I suspect this was a pose image sort of like a still life-- now a treasure!

Fabulous restoration...I like the different expressions of the two groups of ladies...the older generation thinking ' you wouldn't get me in one of those...'. The younger, I want to have a go now....😁😁😁

At a time when some families could still afford to retain servants...it would soon all change.

Keep them coming 😁

A fine restoration and presentation, Dave 👍 I'm a bit brain-dead today when it comes to witty captions! 😬
Have a good weekend, and keep well 😀

Beautifully done Dave. Think he would have preferred the pub. But he's outnumbered.
