Questions for Photos 4 and 5

1. Why do you think Madam Walker would have used the portraits shown in Photo 4 in advertisements? Do you think they were effective? Why or why not?

2. How does Photo 5 differ from the images in Photo 4?

* The photos on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 4, and Photo 5, but be aware that each file will take about 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
