Jannie Payton [rather recent ball point pen name on verso], a large photo mechanical chest-length portrait print of a beautiful, well-dressed African-American woman about 30 years old, 20 x 16 inches.

NP [Washington, DC?]: np, nd [ca. 1890]. We found two notices in the Washington, D.C., newspaper, the "Afro-American," both from 1937, listing a Miss Jannie Payton as financial secretary of the Monteray Club, and noting that she was hosting one meeting and participating with the executive committee in another. Photographic print (rubbed and soiled, old stain in corners and along edges, break just below the chin, repaired on verso), mounted on board (cracked on verso in several places). Good copy of an intriguing late 19th-century photograph portrait of an African-American woman. (2679). Item #55889
