A black-and-white matted photograph of funeral floral arrangements memorializing Samuel M. Jackson, Jr., who died at three (3) years old after an illness. The photograph is of an interior space filled with funeary wreaths, sprays and other floral arrangements. The flowers are spread throughout the room, completely covering various pieces of furniture and partially covering a sofa in the lower proper right corner of the photograph. In the midst of the many flower arrangments are other items, including a doll, a clock, and a framed photograph of Eunice Jackson embracing Samuel Jr. On the wall at the upper right corner, partially out of frame, is the family portrait of Samuel Jr. taken when he was 7 weeks old. At the lower right corner, printed on the photograph, is [Randle/ Studio/ Tulsa]. At lower center, printed on the mat, is the text [The Blanch Randle Studio/ 119 N. Greenwood/ Tulsa, Oklahoma]. The photograph is affixed to the mat which is made from a thick card stock.
