Two weeks ago I shared the other half of this Latvian-American album. Today it's time to meet severe people, beautiful dresses, hats, and some swimsuits, too!
Beautiful embroidery along the neckline. Black and white photos create the illusion that people in the the b&w era mostly wore just black and white, but I like to imagine what colours these people wore. (She could be wearing dark emerald green! Who knows...)
I'm not sure if the neckline of the girl above is embroidered or made of floral fabric or ribbon, but I'd just love to see it in colour! The text appears to read Moscow and the year 1916, and something I can't read in between the two. My understanding of Cyrillic alphabet is pretty much limited to Mockba, and that photo corner is totally stuck, so I'm unable to peek under it to see more letters of the mystery word.
For a while I was a bit stuck, feeling like I no longer have anything interesting to share with you in this Accumulator Seriali series, but when I got round to really opening my eyes, digging around my drawers, and getting a special delivery from my family sorted, I'm pretty confident I'll never run out of delightful bits and bobs to write about! Oh the feeling when you open a small nondescript brown paper bag and out falls a handful of tiny floral glass buttons...
