This album is related to a series of photograph albums in CC010. There was no volume 78 in that sequence; however, The Strong Museum (the former owner of the albums in CC010) assigned the number 78 to a volume lacking its number. This album is the true volume 78 per the arrangement of the compilers of the albums.
