Notes:
- 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 "Pala?ste 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."
Summary:
Original Caption transcribed by Joseph Upton reads, "331 (In blue: 430) Gr. Moschee. Grabung in dem Osthalle nach Malawiyyah."
Original photograph number given in red reads, "331."
Original photograph number given in blue, possibly indicating a revision, reads, "430."
Additional information from Archives staff reads, "No existing negative."
