Collection favorite:artifact spotlight # 5

Thought I would quickly share one of my favorite photographs in the museum’s permanent collection. The image is of Ann Ackerman, (sister of Josephine Hoenner Welter) seated between two of her colleagues. She worked as a secretary for a plumbing union in Chicago in the early 1910s, presumably when this photo was taken.  I love the coy expression on her face and her splendid hat!
