On our bookshelves at home was a book, "Portrait of a Lady"
. I never got to read it but somehow this image of Katharine Tynan reminded me of it, and the regret that I never took the time. A really nice image, well posed and beautifully taken by Chancellor. Katharine’s hair style is surely one that many ladies would be happy to have now, after four months of no hair salons being open?
