Biographical/Historical note

Lloyd Robbins was an amateur photographer who photographed Pullman and the campus during the 1890’s. He was apparently a friend of George Ritchey (PC 13) and photographed him at work in a grain storage elevator in Pullman; the photos taken from Military Hill appear to have been taken from Ritchey's home on Windus Street.
