    I’ll be dad burned if I know who that lady is but I’ll bet you dollars to doughnuts the photo was taken at the train station in Pasadena and she’s a star/starlet getting the Hollywood treatment. I think she is standing that way because she wants to look thinner. I suspect she’s doing all right financially, because she seems to be wearing a real nice wool knit dress and jacket and a fox stole. Not just a kid off the train from Ioway. The hat and the gloves are very modern a la 1936 or something. I suspect the shoes aren’t cheap, either. Nice photo.
