Black and white photographic postcard of Daniel Hendricks wearing Masonic apron and collar. He stands facing the camera, wearing a three piece suit, tie, and hat. Around his neck is a wide Masonic collar, decorated with five stars on a light colored background. The collar is oval shaped and edged with thick fringe.

Below is the Square and Compasses. In the background is a painted backdrop of a column on plinth, a brick walkway, and some foliage. On the back is a postcard format.
