The following account is provided on separate letterpress along with photographic plate:

“This profile portrait has been specially taken by Miss Johnston for the Kodak portfolio.  It furnishes another example of the successful use of the lighting of ordinary rooms for portraiture.  The textures of the different surfaces represented are effectively rendered in the picture.
The photograph was taken with a No. 2 Bull’s-Eye Kodak.”
