11 August 1969
Saint-Etienne, France

These appear to be passport photos. From 1961 to 1969, Savitri was employed as a stop-gap teacher and a corrector of correspondence course lessons in various state-run schools in Montbrison, Saint-Etienne, and Firminy, near Lyons. Her employment ended in 1969, probably at the end of the 1968-69 academic year, for reasons still unknown. Savitri was offered work in Dublin, Ireland. She might have had these photos taken for a new passport. She was not allowed to land in Ireland, however, for reasons still unknown. So in September 1969, Savitri returned to Greece, where she lived until August of 1970, giving private French lessons and continuing to write her Souvenirs et réflexions d’une Aryenne.
