I bought this photo in 2008 or 2009 in a vintage shop in Newark, Delaware. There’s an inscription on the bottom right where the ink has mostly rubbed off.  But by tilting the photo, I was able to read the imprint left by the pen: “To a Lovely Aunt, Love Rita.” I have no idea who the original owner of the photograph is. There was no other identifying information and the shop owner told me this photo was part of a larger box of photos purchased in a lot sale.

I think it’s an amazing photo that should be shared.
