Domestic structures and early buildings in Rhode Island


Paperbound volume of black and white photographs, exposed in the 1920s, and presumably taken by Alfred Shurrocks, an architectural historian. These photographs in many instances duplicate material already in the geographic files, but no attempt has been made to estimate the precise amount of duplication. Most of the locations are identified.

Photographs show wonderful architectural detail of a large expanse of houses in Rhode Island. Album A consists of around 300 Views of first and second period domestic structures including elevations and details of interiors and exteriors.

The overall quality of these photographs is quite good for both study and reproduction purposes. Negatives exist for many prints, though unfortunately negative numbers have not consistently been applied to the corresponding print. Users should be sure to consult the negative index under the appropriate locality to determine if negatives exist. These will be in the "a" series.
