I decided to give these two photographs their own presentation.
They came from two completely separate sources. They are different format and orientation. It is not the same girl or room or pose. They were rescued years apart.
And yet ... There is an irresistible similarity in them: an atmosphere, a mood, a message.
Do you see it too?
Update in 2012: Here's two more!
Update in 2014: And here's another!
While the lighting and pose are similar, the mood changes slightly because this woman seems to be smiling.
Update August 2015: a somber look for a 19 year old.
On the reverse was this information: Dorothy Denman, 1940. From this information LOST GALLERY was able to find her in a family tree on Ancestry.Com
Dorothy Mae Denman was born on January 26, 1921, in Houston, Texas, the child of Ernest Leo and Lennie Estelle. She married Gordon Trotter Borden and they had one son and one daughter together. She then married Richard Earl "Dick" DeGreene on February 17, 1981, in Fort Bend County, Texas. She died on April 1, 1993, in Alexandria, Louisiana, at the age of 72.
If there are two living children, then this photograph belongs to them.
Below are two high school yearbook portraits of Dorothy Denman.
There are now more than 4,000 photographs in the Lost Gallery.

It is always a mystery to us how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
