This is a black and white photograph of John Chowning speaking at a West Coast Computer Faire. He is wearing a plaid shirt and white jeans. He has no facial hair. He is in an animated position as if giving a point. There are two other people visible in the photograph, a man on the left in the background and a woman on the right in the background. In the foreground of the image is a pair of wheels, that could be movie reels. The word "Chowning" is written on the verso of the image with blue pen.
