CRABTREE, John H.  (1863-1924) – photographer, all 40 slides


This is group of slides are from the same source and have similar physical characteristics, but there is no clear evidence that they were used as a lecture set as such.

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.
