This portrait of George Caddy’s fiancée, Betty York, is posed to display her engagement ring. It is one of only two soft-focus images taken by George. The other is of Betty’s sister, Hazel. He was either a romantic, or aware that razor-sharp photographs are not always appreciated by the sitter. George and Betty married on 14 September 1943, with Betty two weeks shy of her nineteenth birthday.
