TWO GIRLS BEACH 1 Two young girls pose for a vintage snapshot photograph as they sit on the sand at the beach. One girl has her arm affectionately around the shoulder of the second girl. The recipient of the affection is displaying a sour expression. Are the girls sisters? Could they be close friends? The answer is lost to history. The girls names are written on the reverse of the photo. I can only decipher one of the names. It is “Ingrid”. A stamp on the reverse of the snapshot indicates that the photograph was developed in Dresden, Germany. Dresden is the second largest city in Saxony. It is situated on the banks of the River Elbe. It is near the border of the Czech Republic. There are beaches along the Elbe and perhaps this image captures one of them. This photograph is in good condition (see scans).

  1. These are young women, not young girls. I know this because one of them is spilling out of her top.

    • I eas thinking they were in their late teens

  2. I don’t think the photograph was taken at the river Elbe, as there are steep banks – I think it more probably it’s somewhere at the Baltic Sea, which was a popular holiday destination for East Germans. The First Name is “Mila”.

    • Thanks for the information concerning the setting of this photograph as well as Mila’s name. The knowledge of the visitors to this blog is amazing. I think of them as a vast unpaid research department of the Cabinet Card Gallery. Thanks for leaving your comment.
