the group

I don't know the connection between these Edwardian ladies, but suspect it might be a shared interest or place of worship.  The hinge on the door looks like it could be to a church door or communal building of some kind and those may be some kind of benches that you can see just on the right edge.  If not connected through a church or chapel, they could be teachers (the younger girls teaching assistants) and the building a school.  The lady in the black dress has a very masculine appearance when you look closely.  The postcard doesn't give any clues, not even a photographer's name or location.

  1. Neat photo. The women in the back both seem to be wearing a helmet hairstyle, that or my little netbook screen is fooling me and those are Russian hats!
