Description

Photograph of a woman standing facing left with her right hand resting on the top of a tapestry chair that has a white crocheted blanket draped across it while her left arm is by her side and holding a hand fan. In this studio portrait, the woman is wearing a dark dress with pleats along the bottom and a bow on the side and a long-sleeved, fitted jacket with buttons from the waste to the neck. White ruffles at her cuffs extend from the dark jacket and she is wearing black crocheted gloves. A watch chain hangs around her neck and down to a pocket watch in a small pocket on the front of her jacket. She is wearing dangle earrings and a dark hat with flowers on the left side sits atop her dark, curly hair. The backdrop is of a room with a fireplace on the right side. A table with books on it sits behind and to the left of the chair. Attached to a cardboard substrate. On bottom of matte, photographer's mark: "BARR & WRIGHT HOUSTON, TEX".
