Scope and Contents:
The collection contains 74 unmounted silver gelatin photoprints. Sizes range from typical amateur rollfilm snapshots up to 5" x 7" enlargements. A typical range of snapshot subjects is included, such as a wedding group, informal portraits, including people with automobiles, landscapes and waterfalls (including the Temperance River and Gooseberry Falls), the Split Rock Lighthouse, and a costume party. Seven prints have been hand colored. Some prints are identified in pencil on the verso. The dates September 28, 1936 and September 21, 1937 are included, and several prints are identified as processed by Brown Photo Service, Minneapolis, Minn., and La Crosse Film Service ("Nature Tone Prints"), La Cross, Wis., so it is assumed that most of the subjects are in Minnesota and Wisconsin. One picture of an infant is marked "Michael Shaw Ohme 4 mo."
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged topically.

As the donor did not supply identification with the photographs, nothing is known about them except for captions and marks on the backs of the prints.
