The Annette Ross Hume Photograph Collection contains eleven original black and white photographs taken by Mrs. Annette Ross Hume about 1895 near Anadarko, Oklahoma Territory.

Another collection of Mrs. Hume's photographs can be found in the Annette Ross Hume Photograph Collection at the University of Oklahoma.
