Helen with her Boston Terrier, reading a braille book, 1904
This photograph, taken in 1904, shows Helen crouched on the floor behind her dog, a bull terrier. The dog is lying down, but its head is facing the camera. Helen's left hand is on an open braille book and her right hand is on the dog's back. She is wearing a light-colored dress with full, pleated sleeves and a big bow at the collar. The skirt has a few horizontal ruffles, made out of the same fabric.
