Effie And Agnes Reunited

This is an amalgamation of two separate photographs that were within of batch of unknown old photographs I acquired from somewhere.  The photographs are of a similar age and technique and more than likely they are the outcome of the same visit to a photographers’ studio. There is a facial similarity which suggests the two girls are sisters, but that is guesswork on my behalf. To set against all that we don’t know, we do know their names, because written on the back of each photograph is a dedication.  

The girl on the left is Effie (“from Effie with love xxxxx”) and the one on the right is Agnes (“With best wishes, Agnes”). As soon as I saw the two postcard prints, I wanted to merge them together, to reunite them. So here they are, after the best part of a century – Effie and Agnes reunited.
