Post Card classification Archive?

Speaking of the postcard classification system of CFR, I think I have found an old almanac from 1883 which also has a 100 year calendar in it which has CFR's handwriting with a classification system in the back. At least it looks like he was building one in the book.  While this is no biggie to most casual observers, I have always been fascinated with the classification of pictures because that is essentially the classification of elements to be found in life.  Seth, do you have the index cards for the post card collection ? Here are some sample scans from the book:

I think that the fun part was what else one can find in a picture with the same context index. It is uniqueness & impact thereor (humor, sex, shock, ...) that provides human memory vividness & remembering.

Seth says
I have never seen the index to the post cards.   But i note that they are certainly tags and not unique names associated with individual items.
