[Photo Album]: Large album of interesting mostly Outdoor images of the West and Midwest
Various locations: mostly 1908-1918. Good. Softcover. Larger oblong octavo. Approximately 10.5" x 7.25". Leather over flexible card wrappers. Chipping and with some loss, spine partially perished, front wrap detached but present, overall good, with mostly very good or better images. Approximately 421 gelatin silver images. Various sizes, mostly variants of 3" x 4" with some smaller and larger. Sporadically captioned, mostly identifying locations and dates. An album that seems to be from the feminine perspective that includes a generous selection of outdoor images at various vacation or wilderness areas that are mostly Western: Yellowstone, Wyoming, Colorado, California, and others; and Midwestern locations including Minnesota and Wisconsin, and a few images near the end of a Maine vacation spot. Activities include much hunting and fishing, camping, horse roping, logging, swimming and bathing, hiking, and motoring, with many puckish images of women and some men posing. About the last quarter of the album is of nurses in California, probably during WWI, caring for wounded soldiers. Some of the captioned images are identified, including D.B. Lyman, Jr. a Chicago. Among the images are several others laid in loose, including a few from much later dates (1940s-1964), which we assume are from a descendant. In any case a more interesting than usual album of outdoor activities.
