Description

Front: Fashionable African American man and woman pose on beach with glass and bottle. He wears a lightly colored suit with a hat and oxford-style shoes. A cigarette perches on his lip. She wears a white dress, silk stockings, and heeled shoes with buckles. Her hair is set in finger-waves, and a pearl necklace is around her neck. Both are smiling. Behind them, several other people are visible; a small clapboard house can be seen in the distance.

Back: Note in pencil reads, "Long Is. July 1926". Note in pen reads, "Emory Dodge Margaret Ruby".
