Clients who ordered photographs would receive them mounted on branded card which was embossed with her logo.

Well,  I wouldn't have picked them as the some person in a line up I don't think - definitely same period of dress though!!   ;D ;)

There is one of the photos which looks similar I think - in reverse.  In the second last link.      :-\

Interesting links . . . but no further along the trail of my lady - unless they kept one of Olive's unknown people . . . and anyway only Katherine's name is showing if the square frame were in place.    Hmmm very tricky.

You can just see the shadow of the frame (which I didn't receive with this photo.) in this attachment.

It's actually very like the woman in the film clip - look at the nose and eyes  :)

What you need to find is why the photo, taken by a famous photographer got into the collection that you have now acquired.

It's most likely because of the size of the frame they used rather than any significance of covering a name  ;D ;D ;D
