Beautiful Studio Portrait Photos of a Young Woman in the 1940s and ’50s

A set of beautiful photos was found by mj aux that show portrait of young woman who was believed to be Elsie Jean (Rush) Williams after his searching in Ancestry. These photos were taken by several photographers at studios in California in the 1940s and 1950s.
