YOUNG WOMAN READING A BOOK IN A GARDEN

This vintage real photo postcard features a young woman sitting in a yard chair with an open book on her lap. She is well dressed in a striped shirt and a long dark dress. Her lace collar has a pretty bow. Her hair is relatively straight and combed to the sides. One observer of this photograph labelled it a Gibson hairstyle. Although the message on this postcard is not very clear, it appears that the writer is stating that she doesn’t like the way her hair looks because it makes her look “soft”. She cutely points out that in regard to her negative feelings about her hair, she needs to accept her hair as it is, because “I haven’t any other”. (SOLD)
