Leo Hahn with Miss Baker and Miss K. RPPC. Private Collection.

Leo with two lady friends IDed on the back. This photo was taken on the 9th or March 1910.

The dark dresses busily contrast so well with the young man’s sober suit. Miss Baker’s wearing a beautifully embroidered dress with a matching filigree necklace, and Miss K is wearing a square flap collar dress that seems to be sheer by the neck.

Leonard Hahn was from Montgomery, Kansas and was 25 years old when this photo was taken.
