Date of Accession20 July 2010
Archivist Note

These photographs were apparently in the Archives and were taken by a previous Archivies to Timbercrest Retirement Community for identification on 19 March 2004.  The photos were all numbered, and some were identified, yet when the accession number was placed on the picture, discrepancies occurred in the numbering.  Therefore, an attempt to give each photo an accession number has been given up.  These pictures will go by their original number in a range of 1 - 229.  They are divided into four groups. Original identification pages are attached.  Jeanine Wine, Archivist, was able to identify a couple more...and added her identifications to the sheets. 

Note: Photos 72 - 105: Identification of Locations and Buildings (72 - 77 are missing)

Possible identification: It was suggested by an individual that MC2004/455-2a (75a), MC2004/455 -2b (75c), MC2004/455 -2c (75b), might be photos of quonset huts that might have been used for student housing during WWII.
