Description

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a woman holding a golf club. She is standing in a dark interior, her body is facing the right side of the image and her face is turned toward the viewer and she is smiling. There are several other golf clubs behind her, in the left edge of the image. She is wearing a small-brimmed, white, fitted cap that has three, diamond shaped decorations on the side. There is a small tuft of dark hair visible from underneath the side of her hat, and she is wearing a white, knee-length, long-sleeved dress and white gloves.
