Summary:Katherine Anne Porter portrait, San Antonio, Texas, circa 1904. Back inscription reads, "Aged 14 years, San Antonio, Texas. Photographer, Hegemann, asked my father to allow him to photograph me for a national photography show. He won first prize in the 'Young Girl Division.' He pinned up my hair and draped me in a black lace mantilla and set me in a fashionable pose and turned me to looking about 18. However it seems to be the only likeness that survived that year, 1904."
