Joseph Smith Papyri Display

Yesterday I had the chance to see a display on the Joseph Smith Papyri at the Church History Library in Salt Lake. The display was entitled "Treasures of the Archives" and was shown in conjunction with the Church History Conference that took place at the LDS Conference Center Theater. I happened to get a new camera a few days before, so I thought I would play around with it. Below are a few of the pictures I took:
