I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

The back of this reads, "Shubert.....B & G Together 1940". The body language of Esther says she's not friends with these folks & is humbled to be getting a snapshot with them. This veiled dame's gotta be somebody! Help!

Is she wearing an albatrose upon her shoulders?

albatross are pretty skimpy. i think that this was some great big mammal that she pointed to & someone else shot. like picking your lobster from a restaurant's tank & waiting for it to be delivered to you, cracked & buttered.

See comment for above photo. The dame in the middle should be Jane Pickens, star of "Boys and Girls Together."
