Annie Gordon Washington

Annie Gordon Washington, a free Black woman who married the then-enslaved John Washington in 1862, is the subject of this cabinet card portrait taken at the W. L. Price Photographic Studio in Washington, D.C. The image was probably made in 1880, when John Washington sat for a similar portrait.
