    Description

    Clarence Darrow: Stunning Studio Portrait with Signed Check. 7.5" x 9.25" sepia portrait of the famed Chicago attorney striking a thoughtful, yet assertive pose. Tipped-in at top and mounted in the original photographer's folder, blind-stamped "Alex Drew Cook" of Philadelphia, signed by the photographer. A note on the back, likely in the hand of Ruby Darrow, the consignor's great aunt and wife of Darrow, reads: "C D during coal strike" (circa 1902). Sold together with an August 13, 1926 check completed and signed by Darrow, made payable to Eyles Simpson in the amount of $175. These two would make a terrific framed presentation. This is our personal favorite Darrow photo!
