These fifty-two glass plate negatives were found in a house at 1510 NW Tyler, Topeka, Kansas, and were subsequently donated to the Kansas Historical Society. The early snap shots show young people in North Topeka "horsing around" with a camera and capturing photos of themselves, family members, houses, flooding, boats and guns, bicycles, farm animals, horses and wagons, and a trolley. The photographs and the photographer are unidentified. These photos are a good example of early vernacular photography made possible by George Eastman's invention of the Kodak camera in the late 1880s.

Date: Between 1890 and 1910
