description:

See also image P0034553. The image seen here does appear to be the same building as that in P0034553, but at a later date and with an addition. P0034553 appears to be that part of the building at far right in the image pictured here. The long portion running from left to right in the foreground of the image seen here appears to be a later addition.

Written on the reverse side of this image is the following, in full: "This picture was taken when my mother was a college girl at Southern Ind. Normal College at Mitchell, Ind., about 1882. [signed] Bessie Lynn Hufford [Mrs. Mason E. Hufford]". Then another paragraph in the same hand, in full: "My mother was Corda Chiles of Columbus Indiana. In 1884 she married Charles Samuel Lynn of Mitchell, Indiana. They were my parents. I was the oldest of three children: Grace Chiles Lynn Kugler and John Wallace Lynn were the other two."
