1940 was an elegant time

By pgarwood
Taken at Lydney 1940's day. This lass was dresed in 1940 fashion from the top of her head to the tip of her toes.
Not too keen on the camera so why bother going to an event swarming with cameras?

A niceley dressed capture not certain about her not liking cameras when she has obviously gone to an event to be seen. Perhaps she is one of those who sufferes from amateur portraits from family members that always look bad. Perhaps if she saw your image she would be more ameanable.

It's a super portrait, anyway; so natural.
