'Paris fashions', 1952

This set of photographs was sent to us labelled 'Paris fashion shoot in Jersey in 1952'. The photographs are not of sufficient quality, either the images themselves or the poses, for them to have been the work of a professional photographer, but they were definitely taken in Jersey and provide a fascinating glimpse of the fashions of the time.
