Photograph of Joan Haley in coat and hat

Abstract/Description: Joan Haley was a journalist and socialite who retired to Pass-a-Grille in the 1950s. She purchased the dilapidated Pass-a-Grille Community Church building, which was at risk of being torn down following the relocation of the congregation. Upon her death, she left the structure to Pinellas County; the building is now home to the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum. The artifact is a sepia photograph displaying a young Joan Haley, dressed in a black coat, black shoes, black trouser socks, and a cloche-style hat. She is shown in Washington, D.C., walking along a sidewalk in front of a low brick wall, with trees and tall buildings in the background. The photograph itself is slightly blurry and lined, bearing a few discolored scratch marks. The lower right corner of the photograph is missing, and there is a tear just left of the missing corner.
