There are also 2 photographs with corresponding negatives of the German Studies scholar, Karl Breul (KB). One of them is a portrait photo taken in Berlin in July 1885 and the other shows KB playing the violin with his sister [not named] next to him and her later husband, Eugen Braunholtz (EB), playing the cello. The portrait photograph is dated 31 July 1885 and other one is probably from c. 1878. However, neither the negatives nor the photographs are the originals, which, according to notes on the verso of photographs, were in the possession of EB's son (in the case of the group photograph) and his nephew (Professor G.E.K. Braunholtz) in the case of the portrait photograph. An accompanying envelope for the negatives states that the photographs should have been printed in sepia (undated, c. 1972). Previously in HFG/box1/file1-2.
