We’re off to a late start on this week’s mystery photo. It turns out that our mystery guest was misidentified as Mabel Todd, but was recognized as XXXXXX by Mike Hawks and Mary Mallory. I found all these photos of her and it seems a shame not to post some of them. Please congratulate Eve Golden for also identifying her!
 
There’s a new photo on the jump!
