Description
A black-and-white photograph of three (3) women next to a parked car, with a baby sitting on the hood of the car. The woman at the proper left of the photograph is Eunice Jackson. She is standing with her left hand outstretched over the hood of the car, grinning broadly, and she is wearing a dropped-waist knee-length dress and necklace, overcoat, stockings, and heels. At the center of the photograph, the baby Samuel Jackson Jr. is posed sitting on the hood of the car. He is wearing light-colored bunting and a cap, and he is grasping the car's hood ornament with his right hand. In front of Samuel Jr., a second woman is sitting on the bumper of the car, positioned in between the headlights. She is wearing an overcoat, fur stole, dress, stockings and heels. On the proper right side of the photograph, a woman stands, facing the camera, leaning slightly on the left fender of the car. 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. According to handwriting on the back of the photograph, the other women pictured are Lottie(?) Johnson and Mable Davis(?).
