Gillian's Found Photo #52

This soul sister looks ready for a night out on the town. Either that or she's an off duty Ikette (or Raylette). The slight peak of red panties is a nice touch. I'm having a hard time dating this one, can anyone tell by the shoes?

I'm gonna venture a guess of around 1971 or '72. It seems like every one of my mom's friends from that time looked exactly like this.

What's with the money tucked in the corner of the pic? She just get paid?

My guess is she just got paid, it's hard to tell what the denomination of the bill is though....

What style! What a woman! She looks like a J H Lynch painting come to life.

Let's spoil your enjoyment ... that's the lining of her dress not the panties that you wish

1967, I can be sure of that by the make-up job. (Think I'll go date-rape my sister...)

Mark said...

Nah, you guys are too young!
By the hairstyle and makeup this is around 1961-1963

Dating the SHOES? Hell, I'm interested in dating the dame.

Oh...and that pattern on the dress is
"flame stitch" which was what fancy men's wallets were made out of around 1790. Not that I think she's that old.

Hair, dress, makeup, shoes -- all add up to mid-1960s -- no earlier than 1964, no later than 1968 -- unless she's from Texas, where the hair could have stretched until 1970. Room decor is strictly 1950s --yuk!

(I was there for all of it.)

Looks like a ring on that left hand - maybe she's heading out with cheating on her mind (that is if the dress doesn't choke her before she gets off the couch) Any guess where the pictures from?

"Any guess where the pictures from?"

Sadly, no, none of the photos from the pile it came out of had any info and all seem to be in that weird time period that could be from the early 60's to maybe even 1970.

I don't even think she was black, she looks like a white woman with a tan. As far as dating the pic, I'm thinking 1968-69.Her dress is a little too colorful to have been before '67.

1964 - 1966
( the hair style like Dusty Springfield ... The Dress like Sandie Shaw

1964? There's a lot here - especially that beehive - we'd have seen in the Ronettes circa 63-64.

Lianne said...

I go with whoever said 1964-66; I might go on the early side of that looking at the hair style, but if that isn't Yardley Slicker lipstick she's wearing, I'll eat the dress.

Then you've got the shaped eyebrows, big lashes, and white eye shadow highlighting the brow bone. ....very mid60s.

Marie Marshall said...

The up-do is throwing people off, because it is very much an early 60s thing. But the dress is fairly psychedelic and it has a Pekin collar of sorts, and the earrings are fairly dangly, so I would date it at about 1967. Rowan and Martin Laugh-In era.
