    [Portrait of Ella Fitzgerald, New York, N.Y., ca. Nov. 1946]

    1 negative : b&w ; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in.

    Caption from Down Beat: A cliché worth repeating is that Ella is the greatest natural singer in the world. It's a thought that hits you anew every time you hear the gal rock. Believe me, that diamond studded queen's crown she wears on her bosom is no uncalled-for affectation.
