Who’s good at crosswords?
I’ve stared and stared at the writing found on the back of this photo and I cannot, for the life of me, decipher the first word. Maybe you can. There are five words total here and the last four of them read: “… hair cut & new car.” The first word starts with a “B” and it ends with a “t”. So, what’s in the middle? Anyone? Before you answer, please note that there is likely no letter “i” (because she dots her i’s (see, “hair”) and I don’t believe I see an “a” either based on how she closes the top of that letter when she wrote out “car.” No “o”. There could be an “e” in there (see, “new”). All I can come up with is “Brut”. Brut is a thing today as I Googled it and found all kinds of listings, but was there a Brut haircut in the 30’s? Anyone?
The car is a 1937 Ford Sedan. And apparently it is a “new” one.
