PORTRAIT OF A GIRL WEARING A BONNET, by S. Isabel Dacre.

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.
