Language of Materials
Photographs and postcards were denoted consecutively when initially processed. Postcards in the collection have since been separated into box 3, while retaining their initial item number. Staff have kept the original numbering while also specifying the correct box number. This may mean that an item number is used in multiple boxes; it also means that some item numbers are skipped in boxes 1 and 2 because there is only a postcard of that image.
Materials are intellectually grouped by town, city, fort, or other location name.
