Description: Photograph of Lavinia Ward, née McDaniel, standing outside of her brick house with a small hand bell, known as the Parker Bell, that belonged to her grandfather, Robert Henry Parker. It is resting it on the lip of a planter or urn in front of the house. A handwritten note on the back claims that the bell was once "used to call slaves in each day."
