I've written about this before.  I sometimes buy envelopes of old photographs, and it's fairly common to find one or two of these hand tinted images.  There not something I really look for, but I have them, and sometimes they are of interest.

What's kind of fascinating about this one is the wings she's wearing on her dress.  (Just below the neckline if it's difficult to find.)  She looks like someone who could be in her forties, from the World War 2 era, so maybe a son in the Army Air Corps, or a naval aviator.  Then again, her pin might be little more than something she found at the local five & dime.
