Note from Ms. West from "Remembering Black Washington" exhibition comment card: "I remember vividly going to the Scurlock Studio on U Street to have my engagement photo taken which was going to be sent to the newspapers for the big announcement! I also remember the Scurlocks who also took all of our wedding pictures and we have the album still 42 years later. Most of all I remember my mother saying Scurlock will be the wedding photographer for they were the very best."
