Title "Shaker School"
Place Mount Lebanon, New York
Catalog Number noc023010
Accession number 2013.023010
Object Name Stereograph
Description As many as twenty-two Shaker Sisters and young girls populate this photograph made in the Mount Lebanon Shaker Girls (summer) School. An annotation in the 2d edition of The Shaker Image identifies the girl on the extreme right as Mrs. Nett (Webb?) when a girl in school; Harriet Jane Hazelin," (1856-left 1874). However, the girl on the extreme right is different depending on which side of the stereo pair one is looking at. The annotation also identifies the Sister seated in front of the teachers' desk as Sister Emma J. Neal as being the "chief teacher." This printing of the Shaker School view, although made from the same negative, was printed to show considerably less of the room's ceiling than is shown in noc004387.
Photographer James Irving
Provenance This stereograph was acquired as a custodial transfer when the Shaker Museum|Mount Lebanon acquired Mount Lebanon Shaker Village and its collection of Shaker materials. It is possible that this stereograph was once part of Francis M. Spoonogle's collection.
