        [Photo Album]: Girl's High School Album from Connecticut

      New Haven, Connecticut. 1949. Oblong quarto. Green leather over paper boards embossed with gilt decorations measuring 10" x 13". Assembled are 230 black and white photographs of various sizes from roughly 2" x 3.5" to 7" x 9" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Some toning, creasing on occasional photos, and tiny tears on the paper leaves thus very good. A photo album documenting New Haven, Connecticut native, Rhoda Sochrin, while attending Wilbur Cross High School and later Southern Connecticut State University. The exploits of young New Englanders in the late 1940s and early 1950s plays out through the extensive pages of Sochrin's album. Beach excursions filled with antics of boys trying to impress their female counterparts with handstands and silly poses; a girl smoking with the caption, "for blackmail use"; another of Rhoda and "Howie" states, "the lovers? Either I'm asleep or I'm dreamy eyed." Later pictures show the group at a Phi Beta dance and include professional "souvenir" photographs with a live band pictured behind them. Sochrin also collected autographs and publicity photos of celebrities, present are Howard Smith, Karen Rich, and Artie Shaw. Rhoda was a member of the current affairs club and aspired to be a writer and contributed to her university's literary journal. A nice insight on the goings on of the life of the American teenager after the war. .

Some foxing to boards and page edges and rubbing to the joints; a very good copy in a supplied dust jacket that is tape-strengthened on the verso and has an owner name and tape abrasions on the flaps, but presents outwardly as very good, without the spine fading typical of this title but with bits of color added to the extremities. Overall an attractive copy of an award-winning title. First Edition. Hardcover.
