Title Freedman's Cottages - Photographs
Object Type Photograph
Scope & Content Black & white photographs of most of the houses surveyed by HCF in 2000. Exterior shots for all and interior shots for some; most are street elevation, although there are some photos of rear and side views. A sample of photographs appears in this record, for 553 Rutledge Avenue, 19 Strawberry Lane, 227 Nassau Street, and 6 Sutherland.

Photo sleeves were organized by address range (in alpha-numeric order by street name/address). While there are photographs of most of the houses in the architectural survey, it is possible that not every house has an associated photograph; likewise, there are some photographs of Freedman's Cottages for which there is no survey card.
