Description
A black-and-white photograph of two (2) women standing next to a parked car, with a baby sitting on the hood of the car. At the center of the photograph is the baby Samuel Jackson Jr. He is wearing a light-colored bunting and a cap. He has his right arm raised and he appears to be reaching towards the car's hood ornament. The woman at the proper left of the photograph is Eunice Jackson. She is almost completely out of the frame, with only a portion of her left leg and her left hand clearly visible. She appears to be wearing a dress, overcoat, stockings, and heels. On the proper right side of the photograph, a woman stands, facing the camera, with her right hand outstretched to prevent the baby from falling. She is wearing a light-colored dress, dark-colored overcoat, stockings, heels, and hat. The car appears to be parked under a flat-roofed portico or awning with brick columns. In the foreground, there is the shadow of the person taking the photograph.
