After posting these two portraits on Flickr a short time ago, it seems a good idea to round up all of the "Big Bow" photographs in LOST GALLERY and collect them all onto one page. It turns out there are quite a few.
I wish sincerely that the snapshot on the right and the RPPC on the left could be the of same girl. It would be only the second time I have found photographs of the same people in different places.
It’s not the same girl, however. The two photographs were found only about 160 miles apart. The RPPC portrait is from Nacogdoches, Texas. The 2.25 X 3.25 snapshot was found in West Monroe, Louisiana.
According to Playle’s invaluable examples, the RPPC could be little later than 1918 and probably earlier. The snapshot at best guess is from around 1925-1930.
The pose and attitude and the bow in the hair seem the same though. It was enough to make me get them together for comparison.
Now, are they related? Meh. Perhaps.
