Tiny photos #1: Tuck in your shirt!

I am drawn to tiny vintage photographs, even mundane ones, because 21st century home technology allows us to easily enlarge them and discover details that one might otherwise need a magnifying glass to see.

I'm going to feature a new tiny photograph each morning this week. This first one is less than 1½ inches across. It does not come with any identifying information. The young lady on the right appears to be standing on a curb or step above the smiling young man in the plaid shirt. What caused her to look down and over at him? Are they boyfriend and girlfriend? Brother and sister? And who are the nattily dressed bystanders in the background?

We'll never know. But at least now we can see them a little better.
