Black and white studio photograph of Ella Ward, 2.5"X4.2", date unknown. This is a studio portrait of a young woman standing with her hands resting on the back cushion of a chair. Her body is facing the right, but her head is turned slightly more to the front. Her dark hair is pulled back tightly and hangs down her back. She has a tightly curled fringe around her forehead. Her dress is dark and probably made of silk and a darker fabric which appears to be velvet. There is a band of velvet down the center of the front and another around the waist. The bottoms of the sleeves and cuffs are velvet also. And just below her hips there is a wide band of velvet all around her waist. There is a slight flounce at the back. Her hands rest on the cushion of the chair and she is holding what appears to be a feather in her right hand. She wears a watch or large pendant on a heavy chain around her neck.
Written on the back in pencil is "Ella Ward".
A separate slip of paper in the envelope has written on it the name "Ella Ward".
