Forwarded to the Archives Center with collection number 140.
These photoprints apparently were contact printed from original negatives. The negatives seem to date from ca. 1890, but the prints are much more recent. A variety of subjects is included, but the theme seems to be educational, including education in crafts, veterinary medicine, and mathematics or physics, although several scenes may be in industrial rather than educational settings.
