    While not the same picture, Marie Kinne of New York went to France to study music in 1923. She had a sparrow she nursed back to health after her cat dragged into her home at some point. The woman in the picture looks similar and is holding a sparrow. Source: Americus times-recorder. [volume] (Americus, Ga.), 10 Aug. 1923. Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers.

    I added her to Wikidata: Marie Kinne (1890-1958) "Jack Dempsey Jr. Flies The Coop. Jack Dempsey Jr., a linnet which had been carried over half the world by his mistress, Miss Marie Kinne, an opera singer residing at the Hotel Endicott, is missing. Miss Kinne rescued the bird from a cat and since then he has been her constant companion. Jack dropped out of his special basket last Saturday at Broadway and Fortieth Street, and when Miss Kinne looked, he had vanished." (Source: Daily News of New York City, New York on 4 October 1923) The article says she is at the Hotel Endicott, and that matches the passport application I found. She was born in Iowa and was living in Manhattan in 1923 studying music. We are in a tranche of 1924 images from Bain, but this one dates from 25 September 1923 when she was arriving in Manhattan.
