I’d like to say a word about captions: they are not always correct. For example, this and this are not photos of Lantelme (there are photos of Marthe Regnier in a similar costume among Reutlinger photos, but I’m not sure she’s also on photos marked as Lantelme). And one photo of Simone Frevalles is in reality a photo of Geneviève Lantelme (photo found and identified by Corinne):
