Here I'm holding a framed poster announcing May Marshall's 50 mile walk in Worcester, MA in 1877. (Note the misspelled name).

With me is Gerry Curtis, Marshall's great-granddaughter. (Marshall's real name was Triphena Curtis). The picture was taken in November 2015 at the Handley Library in Winchester, VA, where Curtis now lives.
