Hi, Earl,

Thanks for the heads up on this. You are clearly correct that the photo was not taken in 1887. I removed the date - the change will appear tomorrow.

We are moving some materials in the archives right now, and the original photo is not conveniently accessible. But I will try to take a look at some point and see if there is any more information available.

Thanks again for helping us improve our catalog records!
