There is one copy of her sales catalogue for photo facsimiles of the American silhouettes; four cardboard boxes which originally held glass plate negatives and later held her photograph inventory; and a set of small card tickets, found in the boxes with the photographs, which are inscribed in ink with the box contents and give mail order information including Jackson's mailing address.
