description
Black and white photograph shows Lester Hughes sitting in wooden rocking chair, resting his elbows on the arms of the chair. He is wearing a suit with a bowtie, dress shoes, and a newsboy-style cap. Trees and a field are in the background. The image is overexposed in some areas and has a simple lined border and margins. There is some yellowing and pieces of tape in places. What is probably the photography company's name is printed on the bottom right of the image in all capital letters, reading possibly "[M]alden A[rt Co.]." The back has a stamp that reads "Malden Print Made Only by Malden, Co., Cincinnati O." among other words that are difficult to decipher.
