JBX002
These photos were taken by John Bair and for the most part have not been developed into prints since he originally took the photos in the late-1890s, early-1900s.  We have recognized some of the people, buildings, and scenes and given them descriptions accordingly, but most remain unidentified.  Viewers are requested to contact SHMA photo archivists with any information regarding any of the photos, including those that have descriptions.
