description
Black and white photograph shows a portrait of a young Black girl, likely Thelm Hughes, daughter of Andrew Hughes, standing at an angle, smiling at the camera. She is wearing a matching square-patterned skirt and shirt, with a large bow in her hair. The sleeves of her long-sleeved shirt are pushed up, revealing a silver bracelet. The image is torn or burned around the edges and stained, leaving a little over half of the image. The back is a postcard that reads "To [my?] aunt Hardy", "Thelma & Marthan[?] Hughes" in handwritten graphite cursive.
