This undated photographic print depicts three buildings from an aerial view. The buildings are situated in an “L” shape around a large courtyard. There is snow on the ground. The builds are likely school buildings as they are the same buildings from another photo entitled “Present Lands: School Buildings #37” which is dated 11/1/1946. This photo, however, may have been taken before 1946 because it does not show fences, trees, and playground equipment that are present in the “School Buildings #37” photo.
Original print housed at the National Archives Catalogue in Kansas City, Missouri in the “Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs” group. The Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation are noted as “subjects represented” in the collection. National Archives identifier number: 4561525; Local Identifier: 75-FB-607.
