New England Photograph Album featuring the - Unidentified Compiler - 1920. 
Various New England Locations, 1920. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album contains 58 vernacular b/w photographs, most measuring approximately 2.5" x 4.5". Most photographs are in nice shape and held to the page with corner mounts; a few have light corner creases. Album and pages have some minor wear. The highlight of the album is a section with 19 photographs of a post-WWI Army Balloon Company. One of the photographs is annotated on the reverse in pencil, "531st BC." The 531st Balloon Company was a reserve unit located in the Boston area in the early 1920s. Photos include unit members holding an American flag, a balloon being inflated, men climbing into a balloon's basket, a balloon ascending, a balloon in flight and bird's-eye views taken from the balloon. Other sections of the album contain earlier photographs of Groton School (St. John's Chapel, campus grounds, crew practice, a baseball game, etc.), an auto trip (western scenery, very muddy roads, two autos stuck in the mud, etc.), a farm (hay stacks, corn field, cargo truck), and several street scenes (marked New Bedford on the reverse) showing a book and shoe store, hotel, tobacco and fruit store, and millinery. .
