Hand-tinted 1930s Party Dress Photo

By Jennie Chancey

This is a beautiful hand-colored photograph of a young woman dressed up for a special occasion (wedding? dance? tea?). The overdress looks like organdy or silk georgette, and her sleeves flutter in the breeze. Her ornament of choice is a big bunch of flowers pinned at the waist. This is probably from the early 1930s, since her hairstyle still reflects the late 1920s to early 1930s “boy” cut. Looks like she had fun!
