Wordless Wednesday: Lois Warren Judson, Violin

Are there any musicians out there? Do you think it is a violin in the photo or a viola?

  1. I know I have said this before, but you just have the coolest photos!!!

  2. What an incredible photograph! I love it. Look at her waistline! Oh my goodness.

  3. What a beautiful photo. I, too, am amazed by the tiny waist. Ladies probably became accustomed to corsets in those days.... (Not to say she wasn't small already, of course, just that a corset would enhance a tiny waist.) Her skirt is also quite beautiful with the layer of lace at the bottom. No idea about the instrument. I'm no expert on clothes and hair, but I think maybe your earlier date is closer than your later date for the photo. Thanks for sharing her with us!
