Today’s Top 5

Mona Lisa smile

Not only are her eyes so engrossing, her smile leaves little indication to her thoughts. A southern beauty who would not reveal her secrets to the photographer. An all time Shorpy favorite of mine. Thanks for finding and posting this one!

Charming Lady.

Beautiful, dignified and with such a sense of style. I hope she found a good life with a man that could appreciate the wonderful treasure he had with her. To be able to manage such fashion on the very meager wages she had to be making is amazing.

Sharp!

That is a really sharp outfit she has on. She is absolutely beautiful with that look in her eyes. Props to the photographer too.

Charming young woman

She probably was born too soon to take advantage of her natural beauty and inborn style!
