The John Horgan, Jr. photo album contains 23 images of industrial sites around Birmingham. Taken in 1889, these images are a good example of early photography, but they can also provide a helpful context for other collections in Acumen. For instance, the DeBardeleben Company is often mentioned in the Working Lives oral histories, and the image below of the Woodward Iron Company site helps add to the company history as represented in the Woodward Family papers.
