- Finding aid title reads, "Workmen's payroll, Samarra January 9, 1911 - August 30, 1911." [Joseph M. Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive, compiled in 1974]
- Additional information reads, "Only the payroll booklet of the first campaign is preserved in the Sackler Archives. From this material it becomes clear that normally one crew of workers consisted of 20-25 men led by a foreman. For most of the time Herzfeld tried to maintain seven crews. After he had lost at least 50% of his workers in late spring and summer 1911, his efforts to make up the losses can be seen from the payroll of August 30, 1911. His workforce had expanded to 9 crews with most of them having 27-29 men. From a note in one of the letters to Sarre we learn that the normal working day lasted 10 hours. Only during Ramadan was the time reduced to 9 hours; see AP IV, Letter of August 5. 1911." [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. 15."]

Arrangement:
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.

General:
- 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."
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Prints related primarly to the second campaign of excavation at Sāmarrāʼ (Iraq), carried out by Ernst Herzfeld on behalf of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin in 1913.
