Label reads: “II / A Morning Call in the ?Fifties / S. Isabel Dacre / 10 Acomb St / Manchester / £42.”
[Because I’m not certain of the reading of the title, it remains with the 2022 auction house title of “Portrait of a girl wearing a bonnet.]
Acomb Street is in south-central Manchester, running through the university grounds.
