New York, 1934 (maybe).
My mother went to NYU (New York University) and I’m guessing this picture is from that time. Tough to tell for sure but it seems that way.
She was an English major and when she graduated she worked at various magazines and publishing houses as an editor. She wasn’t career driven although my guess is she did well at whatever she did.
I’ve been scanning old pictures for a photo album I’m making for my mother for her 100th birthday, coming up on May 26th.
