    What a lovely old picture with everyone so well dressed for the celebration in a beautiful restaurant. Enjoyed!

    • Glad you liked it! 🙂 I found it fun scanning through every face in the photo – everyone is having different levels of fun. There’s one woman in the middle of the photo who looks not so impressed, and then there’s a woman near the right-hand corner living it up!

    Everyone perceives the same situation in many different ways. Makes for an interesting analysis as you wonder what they were thinking. The ladies’ hats are spectacular. Still enjoy wearing a lovely hat now and then.
