[Canton, Ms. and nearby towns, 1971. 179 photographs ranging in size from 2 x 1 1/2 inches to 8 x 10 inches. 175 photographs mounted in album, four loose. Twenty-two pieces of loose ephemera and newspaper clippings. Oblong folio. Brown leatherette boards with blindstamped Viking ship and faux edge stitching on front board. Spine amateurly repaired with spare fabric sewn to boards. Wear to boards, album leaves occasionally soiled and chipped with occasional tears or creasing to photos, some photo mounts reinforced with stitches. Good only. Eclectic album from the Jackson family of Canton, Mississippi, filled with photographs of family and friends, in particular the Franklin family, and ephemera from local churches and schools. The material in this album tracks several generations of the Jackson family and their friends from the Jim Crow-era South to the Civil Rights movement. Many of the images are captioned and most date from the 1930s-1960s. There are several earlier images, including several compelling portraits from the 1910s-1920s, and a CDV of an unidentified African-American man with a Canton photographer's stamp (Weatherford & Swan) on the verso. Later photos include scenes from the Buckthorn Missionary Baptist Church in Canton, with two shots of outdoor church processionals (one in which all participants are dressed in white) and a large photograph of the congregation assembled in the church. There is also a school photograph of the Cameron Street School class of 1949; photos of Limuel Jackson in his Navy uniform; photos of a young Claude Lavoisier Franklin, Jr. … [Click Below for Full Description]
