Theme Thursday - Hats or Crowns

This is a studio photo of my maternal Grandmother when she was 18. I've always loved the pensive look on her face as though she is lost in thought. My Grandmother has always been a fashionable dresser too and this dress is quite pretty. This is my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.
