Scope and content

Photograph depicts a diorama of several specimens (raccoons) of the Provincial Museum's natural history collection photographed in the Provincial Museum, likely the location at the former Law Court, ca. 1889-1898. This negative has been manipulated (retouched), altering the side and therefore the perceived size of each side of the diorama.

Notes area

Physical condition
