Series VIII: Photographs, [1880-1994], undated

Scope and Contents note

This series contains photographs of the residents of the LCU, the interiors and exteriors of the homes, and a few pictures of the workers. Many of these photographs are featured in brochures of the LCU. The pictures of the residents include depictions of the girls eating in the dining hall, lounging in the "parlor," reading or watching television, and sitting outside in the garden or playing ping pong. The photographs of the buildings are organized by the name of the home whenever possible. The building photographs do not contain pictures of the residents, jusy pictures of the facades or empty interiors. Unfortunately, many of the interior and exterior shots cannot be identified with a particular home. There are only a few photographs of the administrators and workers within the homes. Dates of most of the photographs are approximate. These materials have been digitized and can be viewed here.
