- Accession number and title are provided by Xavier Courouble, FSg Archives cataloger, based on Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
- Photo File 22 and Photo File 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of the palaces, mosques and private houses of Samarra which was never prepared. According to Joseph Upton, the only identification, written on the backs of the prints which were glued to the Album page, had a first number in red crayon used in the captions as the negative number. In some cases, an additional number is given in blue crayon, possibly indicating a revision of the list or an alternative negative. A set of photograph duplicates, with handwritten annotations, in black, red, and blue, seem to confirm Upton's findings.
- Additional information from Archives staff reads, "No existing negative."

Original photograph number given in red reads, "331."
Original photograph number given in blue, possibly indicating a revision, reads, "430."

In early 1970s, Joseph Upton has organized the prints in sequential number following planned but never published volumes of the "Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra" series to deal with the architecture of the palaces, mosques and private houses. In early 1990s, FSg Archives re-numbered the pages included in the photo file folders and re-housed them in document boxes, stored on shelves

Summary:
Original caption on verso reads, "Samarra. Gr. Mosque, unpublished, 9 (in red pencil)."
Additional information reads, "Clearing the debris along the inner qibla wall provided evidence that its center had not been occupied bu a large triple gate but by a miḥrāb of enormous, yet harmonious dimensions flanked by a gate on each side. The actual prayer-niche turned out to be a fairly deep, rectangular recess. Standing in rectangular staggered recesses, a double set of columns flanked the niche. From the fragments found in this spot, Herzfeld concluded that each set of columns had been composed of a pair made of different color marbles. No parts of any of the column's bases were found in the mosque proper. In spite of the miḥrāb's complete destruction, a horizontal line visible at the outside of the qibla wall testiffies that the projecting miḥrāb box originally had a flat roof."

Summary:
Original caption on verso reads, "Samarra. Gr. M."
Additional information reads, "The mosque proper included a prayer hall on the southern side, and riwāqs in the east, west, and north, covering a space of 37,400 square meters. By 1911, the piers and foundations had vanished, scavenged by the local population in search of high-quality bricks, leaving only the empty foundation trenches. With no remnant of the piers proper left, reconstructing their form above ground posed a serious problem. Finally, more careful and cautious excavation uncovered the plaster fragments that had once covered more substantial supports and had left impressions of massive piers among the debris when the support collapsed. The reconstruction proposed that the supports consisted of a square socle on which a composite pier rested, consisting of an octogonal brick core flanked by four marble of granite colonettes. The latter came in only two shapes, cylindrical or octagonal, but in an amazing variety of types and colors of stones." [Leisten, Thomas, 2003: "Excavation of Samarra, v. I. Architecture : Final report of the first campaign 1910-1912. Verlag Philipp von Zabern, Mainz am Rhein, 2003. p.42."]
