Photographic portrait of Francis Mellus and his wife Adelaide Johnson, with retouching, [s.d.]. Ms. Johnson is seated to the left with her left hand placed in her lap among the folds of her striped dress. She wears dangling earrings and has her dark hair pulled back. Her husband sits to the right of her with his left hand positioned on his left thigh. He wears a three-piece suit with a ribbon-style tie and stiff collar. His hair is parted at left, and he is clean-shaven save for muttonchops that may or may not extend below his jaw. Both Mellus and Johnson appear to be young, perhaps in their early thirties. Their faces and clothes have been retouched by paint.
