CRABTREE, John H.  (1863-1924) – photographer, all 119 slides


The set appears to have been assembled from at least two earlier groups of slides, with green and beige binding strips, and then numbered in the sequence shown, with a further group of slides left unnumbered. This might suggest the assembly of a lecture from a larger stock of slides.

Crabtree is identified as the photographer on the basis of the physical similarities between these slides and others in the RAMM Collection, particularly the handwriting on the slide bindings.
