Archival History

Negative originally incorrectly attributed to Frederick Ault. Taunt register, volume 6, page 72 has a marginal entry which states 'Our plates' from 18193 to 18299, but this was apparently missed during the initial indexing of the collection. Like entries in the earlier volumes, which are for Taunt's own photographs, those after the comment are fuller than the rather abbreviated notes for the Ault material.
