2. 7 ½” x 9 ½” image of Jefferson Davis’ library in his Biloxi, Mississippi home, “Beauvoir.” This image was part of a scrapbook or album at some point. (1898, copyright by R. E. Hinchey)
3. 10” x 13”
image of a large group of people (possibly a conference or convention)
posed at the Edgewater Gulf Hotel in Biloxi, Mississippi. The photo was
apparently taken in the winter, because several women in the group are
wearing furs. The photographer was J. H. Coquille.
