Caption pasted from newspaper: "MARCH FONG Opposes death penalty Oct 8, 1972." Mrs. Fong is standing in front of the canopy to Sutter Club (Sacramento, CA). At the back of the white canopy with "Sutter Club" written on it in stylized upper case print, are two doors of a Spanish/Mission(?) style. They are of dark wood; on the doors are raised pieces of wood that create rectangles. Where the pieces of wood meet are dark (black) metal fastners. The right door has a light round spot in the middle of the third retangle down - perhaps a lock. Below it a rectangular of light color (gold?) that could be the doorhandle. Mrs. Fong looks serious/concerned and is looking to one side of the photograhper. Her hair is worn in a smooth bouffant/teased style with no bangs but with a flip on the right side. It covers her ears and is almost to her collar. She is wearing medium sized hoop earings and a large oval stone ring on the index finger of her left hand. Her coat/jacket is of a light color with wide lapels and is of a woven/textured fabric that has a subtle pattern in it. Her blouse is dark and light with the dark squares having triangular accents of light color and the smaller light areas having dark triangles. In her left hand she is holding a piece of Senate stationery. The word "Senate" is visible and what is probably the official seal of the State of California is on the left side of the paper and what appears to be names and addresses as seen on letterhead faintly visible on the upper parts of the paper. Another piece of paper is shown behind it. No writing is visible. This photo could be one that was taken where she had been superimposed on another photo. .
