Coral Browne early 1930s

Early studio photo of Coral Browne. This is a digital photo I took of a print of a photo of Coral Browne which she dedicated to "Aunt Teen", my grandmother, Christina (Bennett) Robertson (who was technically her great-aunt, the sister of her mother's father). I had to photograph it (rather than scan it) because the frame it's in is an unusual metal convex thing that we've had in the family since it was put in there, and I'm reluctant to disturb it. The original is sepia (I did say it was unusual) and the sunlight in which I took the photo has accentuated the colour. I'm guessing it's from the early 1930s.
