1896 Photographic Book

We have many photographs from the 1880s and 1890s taken by professional photographers and/or commissioned by the school, but few taken by students. Yet here is an entire album of student photographs, offering us a unique perspective into the views and values of a student duirng the Gilded Age. Many are taken with the new Kodak "breast held" camera, first introduced in 1888 and distinctive for its circular prints.
