[Photo Album]: 1920s Western America
1921. Softcover. Good. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 11" x 7". String-tied brown cloth over flexible paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 66 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 4.5" x 7", some with captions. Good only album with detached pages, worn edges, and rubbing with very good or better photographs. A photo album compiled between 1920 and 1921 depicting middle class Americans on a farm in the West. Many of the photos feature people on horseback and posing with animals including a sheep, pig, and a disgruntled cow whose tail they were posing with as a phone. They also spent time swimming and hiking, one photo is simply captioned "when I lost my nerve," and shows a nervous woman on a rock face. Others include lakeside visits, strolls through fields, and rides in automobiles. The farm is photographed heavily and shows men working with equipment plowing fields and many images of animals. One photo shows the group eating large pieces of watermelon and posing with the rinds, another shows two military men, Sergeant E.J. Covington and Sergeant J.U. Livingston on horseback captioned "travelers." An interesting look at western farm life in the 1920s.
