Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is holding a cigarette in his proper right hand, and a small, flat, square object in his left hand. He is standing in front of a light-colored background, and wearing a light-colored newsboy hat. He has short, dark hair, which is partially visible above his left ear. He is wearing a black suit with a handkerchief in the front, left pocket of his jacket, with a light shirt and dark tie.
