This picture, which came from a film, describes how Anne taught Helen to talk. The two women are sitting down, close to each other. Helen is touching Anne's right cheek while Anne is talking, to feel the muscles move. They are wearing more "modern" clothing than in other photographs. Helen has on a printed dress and a long chain necklace, and Anne is wearing a thin chain above a light top, with a dark cardigan and skirt. Behind them is a big vase of flowers.
