dance school  This vintage photograph features a young woman dressed in a dance costume. The previous owner of this image reported that the woman was a dance school student ,and that at the time of this photo, she was at a recital or a recital rehearsal. The student appears to have been in her teenage years. Her costume is unusual and interesting. Note her wide wristbands and striped cap. She may also be wearing a cape although her pose blocks an adequate view of that part of her costume. The subject of this photo is identified by an inscription on the reverse. Her name is Louise J. Howlan (1915-1970). Her father worked for a gas and electric company. At the age of 25, she worked as a stenographer. This photograph was taken by a Utica, New York studio. I am unable to decipher his name which can be found on the lower right hand corner of the image. The photo is from circa 1920’s. The photograph measures about 4 1/8″ x 6 1/4″.   (SOLD)

  1. Could the name on the lower right hand corner be “Obemaus”?
