Summary
Barr's studio register consists of a single volume (1-158 p. + [10] loose p.) dating from May 1897 through October 1900. The negative numbers begin with 2272 on one of the loose, unnumbered pages and skip to 2371 on the first numbered page. The numbering continues unbroken through 6918 (October 31, 1900) then skips to 7000-7037, and again from 7076-7112 on two of the loose, unnumbered pages. The register includes information on date ordered; name; residence; negative number; number ordered; size and style; when promised; proof sent; amount paid; amount due; when delivered; and, remarks.
The Barr family photograph album contains 22 images, most indentified as members of the Barr family, including C. Fred Barr, Virginia Hall, Martha Hall, Elizabeth Barr, Edward Barr, Mary Elizabeth Hall, Mary Fisher, and Mamie and Lillie Swartz. Of interest is a photograph of an African American woman, identified as "Mammy Amanda," holding Elizabeth Barr. Also of interest is a photograph of an unidentified African American woman and her child. Many of the photographs were taken by C. Fred Barr but there are also examples by J.B. Wortham of Winchester.
