1930s fashion photo Dena Evelyn Shapiro

I think this photo must be from the early 1930s – she’s just lovely. There is something about her face which reminds me of Rachel Weisz from the movie The Mummy.

The photo is of Dena Evelyn Shapiro [Joseph] who received a Master’s in sociology from the University of Chicago in 1929.

This photo describes her as just having traveled “to Palestine, to see how the new cloth of Zionism is fitting into the old garment of the complex Moslem-Christian-Jewish life there.”
