description
Black and white photograph shows two Black girls, possibly William L. Hughes' nieces, sitting closely on a couch with their knees folded and pointing towards each other. The girls are wearing similar gray schoolgirl-style outfits with white-collared blouses and tied-back hair with curled bangs. The girl at left has black detailing on her dress, a black neck tie, and black boots, smiling and showing off a missing front tooth. The girl at right is wearing what appears to be gray hosiery and black shoes, smiling with her mouth closed. The image is mounted on a postcard with a scalloped edge, with "A Blessed Christmas" at the top left and "Mary Barksdale" at the bottom right in cursive. Illustrations depicting Biblical nativity imagery, including trees, stars, and the Three Kings, are on either side.
