Untrimmed black and white print (printed by Jerry L. Thompson in 1975, NY from its glass negative.)
A woman stands in front of a painted backdrop depicting an interior setting, evidenced by the window with curtain pulled back and the paneled wall. Under her highly patterned dress with ruffled sleeves, we see a checkered fabric over her right leg, right above her shiny black shoes. Her gaze is directed at the camera, and her frontal pose highlights her earrings and lobed coiffure. Her right arm gently lifts the side of her dress, revealing its body.
