Notes:
No Ballinger log entry. Photo nos. 4870 and 4898-4903 have been identified from visual evidence. Photo no. 4870 is an architectural drawing, a perspective rendering of the proposed building. It shows a two-story building on a corner site with "S.S. White Dental Mfg. Co." above the entrance and "Churgin Laboratories, Inc." at the cornice. The relationship between the firm names is not known. Another entrance on the left side is elevated by the slope of the street. Photo nos. 4898-4899 show the exterior of the completed building. The label "S.S. White Dental Mfg. Co." is now on a plaque attached at the entrance. A street sign reads "Jewish Business Centre, Jersey City, New York", and points to the right. Photo no. 4899 shows a street sign on the opposing street "The ? , Bloomfield, Caldwell, and points north." Shown down the street on the entrance side is the "131 Club". Bloomfield & Caldwell, as well as Jersey City, are located in the north east section of New Jersey. A location of Union, New Jersey may be suggested from its geographic proximity, and also from the presence of a neighboring photograph of a proposal drawing, cataloged separately for the "Union Hospital".
Photo nos. 4900-4903 are interior photos, attributed to this building from the apparent laboratory illustrated in photo no. 4901 and from a sign in a display case in photo no. 4903 "S.S. White, Water cooled tray, no. 4". A calendar on the wall in photo no. 4900 reads "December 1942", and is from "Employers Mutual", suggesting the date of the photo.
