Eileen.  Photographer unknown.  Date known, but unrevealed.

This is probably the only portrait of Eileen that I will display on Blogfinger which I did not make.  She was 19 years old and was trying on some pre-marital headwear. This veil was rejected, and she doesn’t like the image much. But I like the lack of pretense revealed by this portrait.

We think her father, Bernard Harkavy, took this test shot. He ran a showroom in the garment district of New York City. Eileen had lots  of sweaters, which her Dad’s company specialized in.
