A methodological expose of Thomasville, Georgia, during the 1890s using photographs taken during the period by Algernon Moller as a primary source for establishing historical sequences and journalistic narrative. The glass plates, lantern slides and existing prints taken by the photographer Moller depict the cultural occurrences within the urban, farming, plantation and black communities. These photographs are organized by subject matter and are accompanied with a system of indexing which identify and establish known historical fact. By applying a proper system of cataloging it is possible to use photographs as a primary source. This methodology has been successfully applied to the hotel era of Thomasville. In addition, the photographs are supported with historical data collected from various authors, and journalistic narrative found in daily newspapers of the period. The combination of the three disciplines, photography, history, and journalism delineate the culture of this resort area. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 44-03, Section: A, page: 0798. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--The Florida State University, 1983.
