    Scope and Content of Collection

    The collection contains 20 b/w stereoview images of African Americans, possibly Louisiana, mounted on one large sheet, numbered but lacking captions. These appear to be staged scenes, with several images of children (sitting on steps, at play), men playing cards, eating sugar cane. These possibly were intended for a foreign audience, with "FOREIGN TITLES" notations below some images.
