I would guess by the styles, the early 1920’s.

For what it's worth, I have photos of my great-grandmother wearing similar shoes, taken in the late 1920s.

Marcie,

As soon as I saw the photo I thought 1920's.  Her hair is bobbed, and the shoe style is 1920's.  It appears to be a studio portrait.  You can tell by the props in the photo.

Is there a name of a photographer or a photography studio anywhere on the photo, front or back, or if you have the frame, the name should be imprinted on the frame.

If you have a photographer's name you can trace the name through old city directories on Ancestry.com.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
