Photographs, ca. 1861-1915


Scope and Contents

This series contains more than one hundred photographs and post cards, many of them undated and unidentified. Particularly notable images are photographs of the Elys and their school in Bitlis. Other photographs are of scenes in Bitlis and elsewhere in Turkey and of Armenians in the region, including orphans and refugees. This series also includes photographs of buildings and historic sites in England and Europe, probably dating from the Ely's travels in 1865-1866, and three cyanotypes of buildings at Mount Holyoke College, printed on cloth.
