Scope and Content

Small black and white photograph of a woman wearing a hat, seated at a table on a veranda, overlooking a lake or bay. Two men are also in the scene. Her table is to the left of the picture, with a bottle of wine in it. [Taken during a holiday in France.] Faded to a brownish tone, and pasted onto a page in the notebook.

Note: possibly to illustrate, or suggest scenery, for the 'GRAND CHORUS' on the page opposite, about eating and drinking.
