Sugffragists Campaigning

Suffragists Irene Langhorne Gibson, at right, and Florence Jaffary "Daisy" Harriman campaign for New York City mayoral candidate John Mitchell in this photograph, probably taken in October 1913. The women endorse the candidate beside a banner for the "Womens' Fusion League for Good Government." The photographer, or perhaps a darkroom technician at the news service, has etched Gibson's and Harriman's names into the emulsion of the glass-plate negative.
