    Received from Marilyn Blaisdell as an exchange in return for loan of SFMM negatives and prints in 1977. The original paperwork states that there were (23) 8 x 10 in. photographic prints, but only (21) were found at the time of processing in 2016 (7 in Classified Collection storage and 14 in P-number collection storage). Two copy negatives were made from the photographic prints in 1995 and on an unknown date.
    SAFR-00001 is a blanket accession that was transferred from the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) to the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park in September 1988.
