Note:

Images found among Moore family papers during restoration of the house, 1992-1997. Photos had been stored in trunks in the attic since John Moore, Jr. died in 1975. Collection was discussed in 1998 with Jack Moore. It was decided at that time that all original photos found in family papers would return to the family. When family had not picked up photos by 4/2000, the collection was reevaluated for significance to the interpretive themes of the museum. The accessioned photographs were determined to be significant enough to add to the permanent photo collection as copies.
The originals can be found QBE-12A
