    Each photographic image has been assigned an Item number and each image has two physical forms (1 photographic print and 1 negative). Note that multiple images appear on the same negative film strip (there are 5 film strips total).
    The Items in File Unit 2 have numbers 1-12 handwritten in pencil in the upper right corners.
