Black and white image of a woman wearing eyeglasses, also in a white shirt and dark skirt doing a high can-can kick. She holds her skirt in either hand and stands on tiptoe with one foot while kicking the other up into the air. She wears dark stockings and buttoned boots, and two layers of petticoats can be seen, one light-colored, and one dark. In an era when showing an ankle in public was taboo, this would have been a highly risqu photograph and, as such, it is very unusual image to have from this time period.
