Studio portrait of an African American man, mounted on an embossed card, the photographer is not identified. The print is 4" x 5.5", the card is 5.5" x 6.25".

The man in the photograph is young, perhaps between 20 and 35 years of age. His hair is parted in the center, and he has a mustache. He wears a suit and tie. His shirt has small polka dots. His jacket is unbuttoned and he has a pocket square. The man appears to be wearing a hat with a brim, perhaps a fedora, but it is difficult to tell if this is the case because only the brim is visible and the photo is somewhat faded.
