    Hello all,

    I'm new, so I beg your pardon if I've posted this in the wrong section.

    I'm looking all over the internet for a very famous photo, from the 50's... it portraits a black girl dressed in a black dress, standing on the side of a street in NYC, looking to her left just over the camera, holding a trumpet down to her left side.

    Does anybody know who could be the photographer, or the name of the picture or a place where I could find it/buy it?

    Thanks.

    ...and yes, this is a photo of Mrs. Donald Byrd by William Claxton. You might try searching jazz forums and/or sites for more info on where to find prints.
