The Library of Congress owns over 14 million prints and photographs and only a small fraction have been (or probably ever will be) digitized. Therefore I’m always thrilled to find scans of Indianapolis images, even if they are not fully cataloged. This image, made from an 8″ x 10″ dry-plate glass negative, will be recognizable to most Indianapolis residents as “The House of a Thousand Candles,” but it is merely cataloged as “North Delaware Street, facsimile of John Hancock House, Indianapolis, Ind.” Catalogers have limited time to research and were lucky that the negatives made by the Detroit Publishing Company had location captions on the paper envelopes.
