Carte-de-visite portrait of Mary Anna Longstreth
- Carte-de-visite of Mary Anna Longstreth shown in bust portrait. Her body is turned one quarter to her right, but her face is turned straight to the camera. Her hair is parted at the center and pulled into a high bun at the back of her head. Her cheeks are tinted pink. She wears a pinstriped dress, a white folded collar, and a white lace shawl is draped over her shoulders. The bottom portion of the image is purposefully faded in the popular style of the time.
- Handwritten in graphite along the bottom of the print is the text "Mary Anna Longstreth" with "M.A. Longstreth" written below the print on the mount. A mark for Taylor & Brown is printed on the back of the photograph.
- The photograph is housed in the album 2017.30. The album page has a triple-lined, gold border framing the print. Handwritten in graphite in the lower left corner of the album page is the text "TAYLOR & BROWN".
