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.
