Fille d'un tambourin



FILLE D'UN TAMBOURIN

Sadly, I don't know the identity of the young woman. I have two portraits of her wearing carnival costume, taken by a photographer named Mrs. Holmes, one (dated 1896) at her studio at 4, Park Street, Lytham and the other at the Studio of Davis and Sons, also in Lytham.

Very beautiful and dreamlike - she looks as though she's homesick for her faraway land ..... lovely!

Hi there! about that tea - it comes in teabags which would be quite easy to mail - I'd be happy to send you some :) (my e-mail is linked to my profile)

And perhaps when it comes time to water the garden at Larry's feet (so to speak) the hose could "accidentally" splash some water on all those pesky bills :)

Always so nice to get a good long chatty comment! Thank you!
