Bonnie 176

These cat eye glasses were acquired in a charity shop in England during the 1990's. The style and frame material are early 1960's but the glasses may have been made later. Old style cat eye glasses remained popular in the UK (and Ireland) long after these glasses had disappeared from the streets on the continent. E.g. the famous Sliabh Luachra fiddler Julia Clifford can be seen in a You Tube clip, sporting exactly this frame in the early 1970's. The lenses in these glasses are clearly below Bonnie's prescription. The glasses were selected for her photo shoot because of the frame. It's a pity that the lack of anti-reflective coating on the lenses enables me to post only two portraits of Bonnie. Anyway, better half an egg than none....
