A portrait of Nellie Bly

This photo of journalist Nellie Bly (real name: Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman) was taken circa 1890 by H.J. Myers. 1890 was the same year that Nellie Bly completed her famous 72-day trip around the world; she turned 26 that year.

The photo is now in the collection of the U.S. Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.
