Joining the order

Last year I posted a smaller version of this picture Silent Films as my scanner couldn’t  accommodate the A3 size. Now, thanks to Staples I have been able to scan the whole picture

German Nuns

 There is no description with this picture, it could be a theatre group or two Nuns with a group of well dressed young ladies; either way the attire is a good example of the period.

There is no discription with this picture

Silent Films

This is a still from an old film which may be a silent film. The actresses are unknown as is the title of the film. The woman without the wimple may either be just joining the order or leaving. The addition of the short black veil on the two Nuns is interesting, but may just be the director’s addition rather than an accurate copy of an original habit. 

The image is cut a little short as the original is approximately A3 which is slightly larger than my scanner.
