Thursday’s Caption Contest

The truly fashionable are beyond fashion—Cecil Beaton.

We chortled our way through your captions last week! Finally, unable to decide between references to white shoes, Project Runway, or Baltimore, we turned to our guest, Susan Cooper, Director of Communications  at the National Archives.

Congratulations to Rebecca! Susan thought that her quote by Cecil Beaton best communicated the spirit of this picture. Indeed, Sir Cecil—English photographer, diarist, interior designer, and Academy Award–winning costume designer—would have surely found these ladies inspiring.

So what are they looking at? This image is from the DOCUMERICA series, and “Elderly ladies watch as grape/lettuce boycotters march, 08/1973.” Must have been a shocking march indeed.

And nothing is more shocking than . . . nuns!  Put your caption in the comments below!
