Typescript title leaf.
General note
The prints are accompanied by brief hand-written or typescript captions identifying the variety of lace shown, the place and approximate date of creation of the lace, and the source where the lace was found. Many of the prints are also annotated with some sort of accession number.
General note
Handwritten annotations (by Greenleaf?) appear on the versos of many of the prints, although the annotations are generally covered over with paper and are inaccessible. Some prints have typed or handwritten references on accompanying blank guard-sheets. Some annotations are attributed to Marian Hague, another lace collector.

Most of the photographic prints measure approximately 23 x 18 cm.
