    The clothing suggest that the picture was taken around the 30s. Rosa was dead, Simone 22 and Emma 61 - I wonder who they really are...

  • Hibi Kuss

    At least pretty nice girls... ;-)

  • Debbie Robson

    Yes, like my girl on the beach. I want to know who she is. http://debbierobson.wordpre...

    Debbie - loved you piece on "How to get distracted writing historical fiction and/or the girl on the beach". There must be some way to find out who these three women really are, and why they were labelled as Luxemburg, de Beauvoir and Goldman in the first place. Perhaps it was wishful thinking? Imagine if they really had met!

    Thanks Holly. Glad you liked my piece. Yes I wonder who did label them! I'm thinking Tin Eye might help again!
