[Photo Album]: Women in the San Antonio, Texas area
San Antonio, Texas: [circa 1916]. Very Good. Softcover. Oblong quarto. Measuring 11.5" x 7.5". Cord-tied black cloth over flexible card with "Photographs" in gilt. Considerable scuffing on the boards, cord has been replaced, a few leaves detached, a couple of images removed or otherwise lacking, near very good, images with modest silvering, mostly near fine. Contains well over 300 gelatin-silver images, plus additional small vignettes trimmed from larger photos. A modest amount of the images have captions. An album kept by a young woman, with most of the identifiable locations in the area around San Antonio, Texas. Although many of the photos aren't geographically labeled, one shows Leavenworth, Texas near San Antonio and another photo is from the Y.M.C.A. camp Idlewilde in the Dallas suburbs. Other photos show the woman and her friends working on a chicken farm, having picnics, horseback riding, and later a group of them are posed in their graduation caps and gowns. Two women are photographed playing ukulele with captions such as "are they hula maidens" and "underneath the sheltering palms." The album is full of portrait style photos and candids around the family farm as well as photos of uniformed soldiers visiting home. One section of photos shows the girls camping and posed in bathing costumes which reads "sea nymphs" underneath. A group photo of young men and women in a field has a printed caption reading "gathering the nuts." An extensive collection of photographs documenting World War I-era life in Texas.
