Just to add a little background:

"In 1908 the first congregation ... was formed in Italy. The meetings were held on Thursday evenings at Pinerolo, in Piazza Montebello 7, the home of Sister [Clara] Cerulli, and on Sunday afternoons at Gondini near San Germano Chisone, at Sister [Fanny] Lugli's." - 1983 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses, pages 118-119

Apparently this in the group pictured in the photograph.

Thank you for sharing this rare historic photo.
