A black-and-white photograph of men seated and standing in front of a doorway. They wear coats, many wear ties, and several hold bowler and top-hats. At the bottom right of the photograph is the address, "11th and Pa. Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C." Below the photograph is written "Republican Notification Comittee / Washington, D.C., / Monday, June 20th 1892." Frederick Douglass stands at the back, just left of the doorway.
A black-and-white photograph of Frederick Douglass wearing a jacket, waistcoat, and bowtie. The wet plate ambrotype plates are housed in a folding leather case with tooled gilt oval mat and red velvet lining.
This carte-de-visite depicts Douglass from the shoulders up in three-quarter profile view gazing to the viewer's right. Wearing a light colored collar, dark coat, and dark cravat, Douglass has a mustache, as well as a light streak in his hair. The reverse side has a laurel wreath in ink in the center. Text originally inside the wreath is obscured due to paper loss. Below the wreath is an inscription that reads “Helen Douglass.”
