A call for help!
Recently, during the inventory process, a large collection of gelatin dry plate glass negatives, ca. 1900-1940, were discovered. At first, the images of formal portraits of men dressed in suits were a mystery. I believe that these men may have been part of the management team. The majority of the envelopes that the negatives were found in had the acronym N.E.L.Co. After some investigating I found one envelope that had this spelled out: Narragansett Electric Lighting Company. Unfortunately, the photographer is not identified but fortunately most of the portraits are identified.
Upon checking our holdings I did not discover any N.E.L.Co. publications that had portraits of any of the men listed.
If you know of anyone that may have worked for Narragansett Electric Lighting Company or any other information regarding these portraits please leave a comment.
Thank you for your assistance.
