Object Description
A large black and white photograph of Jane Addams, the co-founder of the Hull-House in Chicago. It was purchased from David R. Phillips' collection. In the middle Jane Addams is standing and putting her hand on the stone pedestal that is to her right. On the pedestal there is a coat or some kind of fabric piece. Jane is wearing a white long sleeve turtleneck with buttons on her sleeves and front of the shirt. Over that she is wearing a dark colored dress that almost touches the floor. She is wearing a long necklace that she is holding with her other hand. Behind her are two tall wood pieces that look like walls but they are hinged together and are on wheels. There are a few small art pieces on the walls.
