Arrangement note

While the collection was formerly organized by a local system (numbers on back), it was reorganized in 2009 by the original identifiers printed on the front. Those images lacking original identifiers are identified as unnumbered (unn.), the original numbering is noted, and they've been placed with images of a similar geographic location.
