Apologies if this has been posted previously but I just stumbled across it tonight. What a stunning photo!

Perfect right down to the OST receiver. Nice to see a photo of one in contemporary use, even if she isn't listening.

Yes, very good composition, exposure and content of the image.

I think I know someone like that - who only uses the transmitter.

She's a call centre agent, calling to see if you want your carpets cleaned.

When I see photos like that, I can't help but imagine that this lady has lived her life completely, school, family, work history, grand kids, great grand kids, and is most likely no longer with us. Just one millisecond in an entire life.

A very nice picture!  Think she is waiting for them to blow out the lines?

No, she would have the receiver in a plastic bag if that were the case.

Sorry about that.  The "phone company" usually recommends a pillowcase as it won't pop and spread dirt.  ;D

Here's another era picture of a WE 10. I like the woman in the first picture more than the cat....

When I see a sweet cat like that, I think of its hair covering everything it can stick to.  ;)
