Esta chica era ciega? si era, ese es un baston
4/5/2013 1:18 PM The idea of the first responder seems very, very likely.

4/7/2013 9:49 AM Al mirar la foto más detalladamente a mí también me pareció que era ciega.
Puede ser que en ésa época, por los años veinte del siglo pasado, no se usaba aún el bastón blanco para ciegos que se acostumbra a usar normalmente hoy en Europa...
En todo caso, good luck with your research!
