Picture shows a close-up of a vignette image at the top of one of the jagged- edged “petals” of one of the prints. Vignette depicts the four-story rectangular shaped building with several rectangular windows of the Pennsylvania Institution for the Instruction of the Blind. A tree flanks each side of the building. A smaller building with several rectangular windows stands behind the larger building to the viewer’s right. The side of another smaller building stands next to the larger building to the viewer’s left. Three pedestrians – a man and a couple composed of a man and a woman – walk on the sidewalk in front of the building. Text printed below the image reads: “Institution of the Blind.” [end of description]
