The museum holds more than 2,500 photographs dating from the mid-1800s through the present day. We recently completed scanning our photo collection and made the images accessible on our website at www.srmml.org. This fellow seems to have been particularly proud of his collection of fraternal ribbons. He wears more than twenty, most from events and field days in New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
