Description: In this photograph, ther are two older men standing together. The man on the right is wearing a light-colored shirt and slacks and glasses; he is handing a plaque to the man on the left who is wearing a dark-colored suit and tie. The man on the left is also holding an identifiable object in his left hand. The plaque is fairly small and shaped like a shield with a metallic Lions Club seal in the middle and a small metal inscribed plate underneath it. In the background, there are curtains and at least two different flags at the right of the photograph. There also appears to be a chair (only partially visible) in front of the men. On the back of the photograph there is a handwritten note that says, "l. to. r. Jesse Blakwell, Marfa, H. L. Leithead, Marfa." Accompanying information says "This picture was taken on May 6, 1949. Pictured are Mr. Jess Blackwell being presented an honorary award from Mr. H. L. Leithead club chairman."
