Photographs
Place:
Indianapolis (Ind.)
Date:
circa 1890
Summary:
Copyprints struck from original negatives depicting women and men at work and studying various trades in the classroom.
Scope and Contents:
The photoprints which comprise this collection apparently were contact-printed from original negatives. The negatives seem to date from about 1890, but the prints are much more recent. A variety of subjects is included, as described in the container list, but the theme seems to be educational. Education in crafts, veterinary medicine, and mathematics or physics are included, although several of the scenes may be in industrial rather than educational settings.
Provenance:
Collection donated by Debbie Cooney, 1984.
Restrictions:
Collection is open for research.
