The first SSND selfie?

Sr. Marietta Bettels, SSND

It is difficult to figure out what is happening in this photo of Sr. Marietta Bettels, until you read what is written on the back:

“An experiment – with a yardstick – camera on windowsill.  Took this myself in my classroom in Seelas Hall, New Orleans.”

Turns out, Sr. Marietta was attempting to take a selfie!
