The cataloging system consists of three markers; the first is an identifier, marking the CDV sequentially and situating the CDV within the whole group. This randomized number serves to orient the likeness and affords it a name otherwise unavailable. The collection, when viewed as a whole, is a mass of nameless faces, and just representation of the everyday Victorian, just interesting enough to not have been thrown away in a dozen decades of movement, but not of enough interest to be situated in an archive. The physical manifestation of this collection is contained within a photobook album, which can be viewed here.
