CloseDownload IIIF ManifestRequest permissionsDownload image Print
J. F. Gates (John Frederick Gates) Clarke and two unidentified workers unpack insect collections at the Lamont Street storage facility. The collections needed to move due to overcrowding. This would be remedied by the addition of two new wings to the Natural History Building, United States National Museum, now known as the National Museum of Natural History.
