RANK, Homer Lee
[Photo Album]: Moonstone Beach
Redondo Beach, California: 1910. Very Good. Softcover. Folio measuring 13" x 11". String-tied paper album with "Moonstone Beach" drawn on the front wrapper. Contains 38 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 3" x 5.5" without captions. Very good album with rubbing and short tears with fine photographs. A photo album from a 1910 vacation to Moonstone Beach, California compiled by Homer Lee Rank. The album opens with a short dedication signed by Rank which reads, "to the girl whose name is the color of this page, because she remembered me, when I was down and out - at the hospital." The photos show the cottage the group stayed in and portraits of the vacationers posed on the beach and in front of the house. One photo shows a candid of the family walking up the dunes to the house, another shows them all posed in front of their car. They spent their time swimming, relaxing on the porch, and boating, all pictured here. The family is seen posed together smiling and enjoying their vacation. Moonstone Beach was in the community of Redondo Beach, California and was a tourist destination between 1880 and 1920. A popular activity here was to collect the moonstones that were deposited on the shores after storms. A collection of better than average amateur vacation photography depicting a California beach trip.
