Scope and Contents:
There are two workbenches, one with a large assortment of chemicals on shelves and a bunch of laboratory glassware, including Erlenmeyer flasks and boiling flasks, jars of acids, burners, etc. A shelf is occupied with a bunch of what appear to be cigar boxes, perhaps containing samples. A desk is surmounted with a bookshelf. A Calendar from "G. Wash. Jackson, Printer and Binder" of Philadelphia is hung on the wall, and shows November 1893. The room appears to be lighted by gas. Negative No, 57. N.B. - another glass negative of the Coal Laboratory exists, broken into several pieces. This other one is Negative No. 58, and the same table appears in the foreground, from the other side-the photographer clearly took his camera to the other side of the room to get a shot of the other side. This broken negative includes a rather early looking exhaust hood.
