1909 hair

Life is a little bit easier for this woman. The First World War is on the horizon but has yet to strike. She has the time and the means to prepare herself for this memorable photograph. There are no hints of fantasy or frivolity in her life, but her hair is presentably styled, and she has been given a girlish curl at the temple. The starched collar of the Victorian era has given way to a softer gentler lace. Fun has returned to the lives of the young women, probably a young wife. The photographer as an artist, has chosen to capture her profile. She is a working woman, possibly a servant, whose young husband is delighted to have her photograph with him. She is barely a decade away from suffering through the Great War and emerging into the age of the Roaring Twenties when her children's generation will experience far more freedoms. 15hqqy.
