Just a guess that this is from the 1930s, so am hoping that a reader may be able to pinpoint the date by clothes and hair.

The clothes looked much older than 1930's to me, so I did a Google search on the name and found this same photo on the Femulate site, and it is attributed to a 1918 print reproduction found on Ebay.
