Series 6: Photographs, circa 1890-1940
(Boxes 20-21; 1.5 linear ft.)

In addition to portraits of family members this series includes interior and exterior views of homes, and pictures of friends and events.
The series is organized into three subseries:
6.1: Family Photographs, circa 1890-1905
6.2: Photographs of Architecture by WMI, Jr., circa 1930-1940
6.3: Miscellaneous Photographs, undated
6.1:Family Photographs, circa 1890-1905
The Ivins Family photographs represent many processes from tintypes to silver gelatin prints. A number were taken by accomplished amateur photographer Emma Yard Ivins of her children, circa 1890-1905; a few of her children are purported to be the work of Gertrude Kasebier (possibly an acquaintance of Emma Yard Ivins?).
