Mrs. Fong is smiling (top teeth showing) and seated at a desk/table on the floor of the Legislature(?). The background behind her head has been "painted out." Mrs. Fong is wearing a dark plaid vest - it has two parallel lines approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inches apart in a light color that create a pattern on the vest. The light color is also used in the edging on the collar and down the front of the vest. She appears to be wearing a long sleeved turtleneck sweater of the same color as the lines/edging as well as a gold chain from which one large and then three smaller pearls extend. She is also wearing drop pearl earrings. Her dark hair covers her ears is done in a bouffant/teased style. Her forearms rest on the desk/table. In her right hand is a pencil; in her right hand she may be holding a pair of glasses. In front of her are various binders and papers. On the left side of the photo in the background is a desk/counter with columns, a carved portion and a light colored top. On the right side of the photo is what could be another desk with a name plate on the front and papers on top.
