Photo Number 203

The name was cut off of this photo..Love..who?  Note the shoulder pleats on the dress and that really large bow..I wonder what color it was..perhaps red!  I will guess that this is a photo from the 1920's.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update: From Norkio 
The gigantic bow and hairstyle intrigue me. So, I took a look at my favorite fashion history site and I'm going to guess that this photo is from the 30s. The hairstyle, with the waves over the ear, was very popular in the early 30s. Plus, the 20s fashions featured a flat, de-emphasized chest for women, whereas this big bow draws all attention to the chest. The wide-shouldered Marlene Detrich look of the 30s seems to be more in line with this inspiration.
