- Scope and Contents note
- This series contains 1,889 35mm mounted transparencies. The oldest images depict 1940 and 1950s Anacostia scenes, reproduced in slide format during the 1990s. The earliest slide is of Cafritz Hospital, it was created in 1965, with the latest slides having been created in 2006. Images depict buildings, roads, people, maps, plans and presentations. The slides were originally housed in five boxes labeled "A-E", one box labeled "Untitled", and nine small boxes. The slides have been re-housed from these boxes into archival binders. The slides in each binder are arranged in their original order and preserve the following categories as they appeared at the time of donation: "Streets", "Subjects", and "Miscellaneous".
