Scope and Contents:
The twenty-eight photographs and corresponding negatives in this collection were taken by photographer Fred S. Frater in Intercourse, Pennsylvania sometime between 1947 and 1950. They document a day-long auction of furniture, farm equipment and household goods that took place during the winter or early spring season. They depict an outdoor setting and, while some Amish women are shown, the photographs feature primarily Amish men and boys.

The negatives are in a two frame strip of 120, black and white film stock.

The photographs measure 5"x5" and were developed on Fugicolor Crystal Archive Paper. Although taken around 1947, the photographs in this collection were not developed until March 14, 2008.
