  • Problems/Questions
    VERIFIED: orientation and identifications verified; statues not registered (no registration records for 1903-1904-1905-1906); this negative was switched with B13046.01 -- the only difference being the number of scales (rulers), because B13046.01 was in Batch 27 in Insight, and thus already "signed off" on (and burned to DVD) by the time the switch was realized, the switched negatives were allowed to remain as is
