Jessie Lloyd O'Connor photo

Jessie Lloyd (front row, second from right) with an unidentified group, September 27, 1928.
Copyright unknown.

This photograph was probably taken in Leningrad during her yearlong tour of the Soviet Union as that nation celebrated its Tenth Anniversary. O'Connor later wrote in Harvey and Jessie (her joint autobiography with her husband), "The frankness and warmth of the Russians gave me a sense of security I had never known before, and as my self-confidence grew, I did things I'd never believed possible."
