Mounted photograph signed by the seldom-seen trio of Keller, Sullivan, and Thomson

Rare vintage matte-finish 8.5 x 6.5 photo of Keller and her assistant, Polly Thomson, seated in their home in Forest Hills, New York, with other guests, affixed to its original 12.5 x 14 mount, prominently signed on the mount in pencil, "Sincerely yours, Helen Keller," and in ink, "Anne Sullivan Macy" and "Polly Thomson." Also signed below the image by the photographer, "F. Garcia Monteiro." In very good to fine condition, with creasing to the upper left corner, a short tear to middle of the top edge, a couple of tape repairs on the mount's reverse, and the photo attached only by its bottom edge. Items signed by Keller, her companion Thomson, and her teacher Sullivan are very scarce.
