Donna Darling Collection – Part 87

Donna, Canoes, and a Cloche

Treasure Chest Thursday
By Don Taylor

For this week’s Treasure Chest Tuesday, I’m looking at five photos from the Donna Darling Collection

Donna Montran in a Canoe

This first photo is a photo of Donna. She is in a canoe and holding a canoe paddle. I’d guess she is in her mid to late 20s in the photo, making the photo about 1920 or so.

Donna Montran in a Cloche.

Again, obviously Donna. This photo was severely damaged and required considerable editing to get it this good. It appears she is wearing a scarf and a heavier coat. She looks in her 30s in this photo, so I’ll guess the image is from after 1925.

Unknown Woman in a Canoe – Possibly Donna.

Again, this photo was severely damaged and required editing. It appears to be a different canoe (the ribbing is different). The woman seems to be wearing a bathing cap, and her hair is wet. I think this is Donna, but I’m not 100% certain. Again, I’ll guess about 1920 or so.

Unknown Woman on Street– Probably Donna.

Again, I’m not 100% certain, but I think this is Donna again. Whoever it is, she’s looking fashionable standing next to a 20s vintage car.

Unknown couple in a Canoe.

Donna didn’t have many photos of other people in her collection, so I guess this couple was important to her. I don’t know the daredevils are, but I’ll keep a close lookout for potential candidates.
