Wordly Wednesday: Family Photographs - Post 70: Teenager Betty

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

This photograph is from loose pictures found in a box, probably from my grandfather's photo album, that I scanned during Scanfest in February:
This is a photograph of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer, sitting on a wall at an unknown location. Perhaps it is in Balboa Park or at San Diego High School. I am guessing that she is age 16 or 17 in this photograph, but I don't know for sure.

This may have been a special occasion like a graduation from high school (which she did in June 1936 at age 16). She appears to be wearing a striped suit with a pleated skirt - it looks formal to me!

Randy, I mentioned this in a comment a few weeks back: I think your scanner needs to be calibrated, if it has that option. The vertical lines evident in your full-sized scans suggest a significant alignment issue.
