Not sure if she is in period "dress" but that's not all bad.
'40s ? Saddle shoes and bobby-sox.
Saddle shoes were invented in 1906 by the Spaulding Company, not sure about the socks though.
I think that style Pennsylvania license plate ran from the late 1930's to the mid 1950's. The outline of the state varied. Too bad we can't see more of it.
Even at age 80 I know better than to look at the license plate!
She's naughty because she's sitting on the fender.
Yeah, I'd guess forties or fifties and bet on fifties.
Bobby soxer. I too think around 1950 - 55.
Showin' a lotta leg for the time period! ;)
Let's keep our perspective. Assuming Royce is right and the photo dates to the early 1950's and assuming she's about 20 at the time puts her in her early to mid 80's now.
It's a 1957 Pennsylvania truck license plate.
Henry,Our perspective has also changed so at eighty so might be a looker!! Bud.
I would say early 1940's. They got into the longer tight skirt in early 50's. Then went to the many slips with full skirt in later 50's.
Those shoes were popular in 1940's. The hair style also looks like 1940's.
How many would be upset with her sitting on fender like that?
I didnt think so!
I think this is a promo for the new Velocity Channel reality series, "Chasing Classic Women". with Wayne Ferrini.
Is that a ration sticker on the windshield?
Not sure what to make of Walter's last sentence.
Well that ruined it for me!
We used to call that pose "shooting a beaver".
Back in the 50's in the 'still of the night'. I bet!

Bud, I have often commented that the older we get, the more good-looking women there are....
I clicked on an ad one time, and now the majority of my pop-ups are from this company. The more I click on them, the more pop ups I get from them. I know most of the models by name now, I can identify them without looking at their faces. And most of them do a nice, short video. I don't complain because these are better than the average pop up ad.
Dick,I need to proof read more as i forgot she is spelled as such and not so. I think you have it right Dick because sometimes it takes a lot of years before we see the true beauty! Thank's Dick! Bud.
She rolled that skirt up shame shame.
Richard, You're looking too close, shame shame.
that left tire looks dangerously slick.is that a 26?
I would not kick either one out of the garage on 2nd thought.
She could hand me a wrench or screwdriver.
There was a period in the mid 40s that short skirts were in style. I often wondered if it was a result of war rationing a support the effort by using less fabric.
I had forgotten this.Twenty or so years ago I bought a framed 1915 marriage license at an estate sale.It was conducted by a nursing home that the old couple had signed everything they owned,farm and all,over to.The old lady,the last to die, was 99.I bought it because it had a great frame,and because I thought maybe someday I would run across descendants,and give them gr-grandparents marriage license.
Anyway,some years later,I took the thing apart.Behind the license were 6 or 8 large pictures of a striking couple,shall we say au naturale.These were not little pictures taken with a box camera,either.The shutter bulb is visible in one or the others hand(imagine have to stop what you were doing to change film).
These activities took place in and around a shiney new 7-passenger touring,with boss bolts on the rear hubs.Can't see the hub cap because there is a leg in the way.I showed the pictures to several members of the Ft.Wayne Historical Automobile Club,and never determind what the car was.The old timers got a big kick out of this,needless to say.
Another thing I recall,skating close to the edge here,was how neatly trimmed,so to speak,she was.I figured that was a relatively recent trend.No need for a scythe and a compass there.
With the internet and the genealogy sites I should be able to find some descendant.Bet that'll bring on some gasps!
Jim, as Burger says: "Pictures, or it never happened." He he.
At least someone here might be able to identify the car!
OMG! There IS a car in that picture! ;)
The wonders of the internet!!More or less by accident,I'm 99%.sure I know what the mystery car in my above post was.Rear hub boss bolts,and I forgot to mention an unusually large number of lugs holding the rim on.We knew it wasn't one of the Three P's.American FIAT!No wonder we were stumped!Finding where I stuck those pictures is now on the list of things to do when I get home.
I was told a old German by the name of Seamour Hiney invented the minnie skirt.
I think she's trying out for Fox and Friends First. Look out Heather!
