Lemon Jefferson
[Add A Photo]

Image is scaled. Click image to open at full size.
Only known photograph of Blind Lemon Jefferson, circa 1926. It is heavily retouched - the tie and collar were hand-painted on - and the autograph is fake, as they often were in publicity stills of the time. The one document known to be in Jefferson's hand is his 1917 military draft registration card; he dictated the answers to a witness and signed with an "X".
