Description
A black-and-white photograph of two framed portraits. The top portrait is a framed oval portrait of Samuel M. Jackson Jr. when he was seven (7) weeks old. The baby is lying on a white blanket on top of a small table, with a cloth wrapped around his midsection, his arms up by his face, and he is facing the camera. The portrait is hanging on the wall. The bottom portrait is a smaller framed oval portrait of a young man with a mustache and neatly trimmed hair wearing a suit. This portrait appears to be resting on the back of a sofa. The photograph has a white border, and the top and bottom edges of the photograph are scalloped.
