This photo was shown previously on Shorpy, but in black and white. I am a fan of black and white photography, but in this case the strategicly placed color is very nice I think. I am including the remarks that came with the picture (not mine).
A splash of color added to Ester Bubley's 1943 photograph of a Washington, D. C. working girl as enjoyed on Shorpy. What were her dreams and aspirations? Was she married or hoping to be married soon? Was her husband or boy friend in the military? What happened to her life after the war? Too many questions, too few answers.
