Fredricks; daguerreotype, ambrotype, carte de visite, and cabinet card portraits, the earliest dating from about 1845; stereographs taken by George Barnard around 1863; over 200 glass stereographs from the late 1890s to the 1920s; and 35 color slides from the 1940s.  Barnard’s images include several prints that are among the earliest known photographs documenting slavery in 19th-century Cuba.
