Throwback Thursday: Helen Keller Photography Portfolio Sold at Auction

Middle Finger News Service - Of all the accomplishments of Helen Keller, the least known was her love of photography. Recently a small collection of her work was auctioned off for an amazing price to an anonymous bidder.

Included in the collection was one of the first known selfies, (below) taken in 1923, and gifted to her teacher and mentor Anne Sullivan with a note written on back, "My hair is a mess, such a windy day."
