Summary

Curators of Fishes and Marine Invertebrates (Crustaceans) and other departments' offices for cataloging and arranging collection specimens located on the former exhibit galleries (north balcony) of the Great Hall in the Smithsonian Institution Building. The balcony exhibit space was replaced by offices beginning in 1882. Specimen jars are on tables and stands. Other scientific apparatus can be seen on the table in the foreground. A woman with her back to the camera is seated at another table and a man appears to be looking into a microscope at another table. The balconies were demolished in 1914 to make way for the Library and Graphic Arts displays.
