Winnie Huntriss
This is how  Piero Sartorio describes this picture.
This lady is  Winnie Huntriss, one of the daughters of George Huntriss [Winifred Huntriss (1893-1977)].
George Huntriss was president of the Anglo Italian Talc and Plumbago Mines Company Ltd until 1907 when it become Talco & Grafite Val Chisone.
Winnie was my mother's friend and, most likely, she come to visit us together with her father who still kept some kind of interest in the company. The picture could date spring 1915 but I have no idea about where it was taken. Probably, it was sent to my mother form England. Winnie was a very sporty lady. I still remember her during a visit in 1928 when she was our guest over some days.
