A black and white image taken of the Fultz Quadruplets in Daytona Beach, Florida. The Fultz Quadruplets were the first identical African American quadruplets on record. The quadruplets are pictured in the photograph, left to right: Mary Louise, Mary Alice, Mary Catherine, and Mary Ann. They are wearing identical tweed coats, black gloves, and black bowler hats. They are standing on the right side of a racing car, which has the numer "16" inside a white circle on the side doors and also on the hood. A white piece of paper is stuck under the windshield wiper on the car. On the roof of the car sits the girls' black handbags, lined up in a row. Behind the girls is a white garage, where the windows and the garage door handle can be seen. To the back left of the girls can be seen a car, and just beyond that a van. A large circular sign, possibly a neon sign, with the word "Pure," on it, towers above the cars. A covered garage can also be seen in the image. The photograph was taken by a Bethune-Cookman University photographer during the girls' visit to the campus. On the back of the image is written in pencil, "Fultz Quads, 1960's, Mary Louise, Mary Alice, Mary Catherine, Mary Anne." A black stamp is also on the back. It reads, "Photo by Theodore Johnson, Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida."
