  • "Maples. 205 Normal Street, Ypsilanti. 1938"

    Photograph of maple trees taken on Normal Street Ypsilanti, Michigan. The treese grow on the curb strip next to the sidewalk. The trees have moderate foliage. Houses can be seen to the right of the trees. Jefferson would often use the same negative to create a lantern slide as well as a mounted stereographic card. When possible we have inidcated if it is a repeat image, however this is not always the case. As such, there maybe a corresponding digitized glass lantern slide, and a mounted steregraphic card associated with this stereographic negative within the Mark Jefferson Collection.
