Notes The 40 photographs for 2013.088 actually were donated on 12/03/2010 and given the number TD 2010.068. They came with items that were put into the Educational boxes (items in the educational boxes do not receive an accession number) so the photographs were overlooked, never receiving an accession number and were not entered into the system.

The 8 photographs that actually came in under 2013.088 were all duplicates of what we already had in the collection so those were discarded leaving 2013.088 empty. Upon finding this error, the photographs from the original TD 2010.068 were moved to 2013.088, (which gave them an accession number), renumbered, and processed under that number.

These were all donated by the same person.
