1920. Oblong small quarto measuring 11" x 7". String-tied black leather photo album with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover. A collection of 364 sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring 1" x 1" to 3.5" x 5.5" without captions. Good only photo album with rubbing, chips, and tears with very good photographs with some wear. A photo album containing a vast amount of snapshots from an American family, most likely from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area in the 1920s. The photos show family events captured through amateur photography including everything from buying new cars and posing while driving them to vacations to Niagara Falls. One group of photos shows young women in bathing costumes posing in a lake. In some photos a local baseball team is seen dressed in uniforms as well as family portraits from everyone to newborn infants to bohemian women in fancy dress. Although most of the photos are printed in silver gelatin there is one cyanotype of a man on a park bench included in the album. An extensive amount of amateur photography from the 1920s.
