Regent and Vice Regents of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, 1870

The attendees of the 1870 Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association council session pose for a photograph on the east front of Mount Vernon. Anne Pamela Cunningham, the regent, sits with a wreath in her lap in a tall-backed chair, gazing in reverence at a bust of George Washington. This is the earliest known photograph of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.
