Album - Cleo and the Jodhpur Gang

Three women and a car

There's not a single mark of identification on any of the 83 photographs in this Wood Covered album. So let's call her "Cleo".

The cover was fashioned from two small sheets of plywood, hand painted especially for this set of photographs. There were tan color pages with photographs placed with corners or simply glued on the page.

The photographs are mostly in five different formats and "Cleo" is seen at least once in each format so all the formats are related to the same album.

Casual pose.

Three women and car
This is the same setting and the same three women in the same dresses as the top photograph on this page. The house in the background is the same too but the photograph is a completely different format. The top one is a 2 3/4 X 5 1/2 and this one is a tiny 1 1/2 X 2 format and printed slightly darker.

I suspect that this one is the same day as the one on the left.

Related photograph?

Here is a photograph that appeared on an auction site recently. It was submitted by an interested party who noticed the similarities.

It is posted here for comparison with the Cleo set. Is this the same woman? Is this the same day? The metal rail fence is similar to the rail in some of the other shots. What other similarities do you see?
