    The majority of photographic prints in the albums feature captions and or descriptions and negative numbers written on the back of the images.
    The original covers have been removed from these albums. Album number 5 is missing.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The albums in this series are numbered and arranged alphabetically by municipality name. Most albums contain a typed index at the front of the album.
