[Photo Album]: A Photo Album of an Ohio Family's Life through Two Generations, 1918 to 1943
Canton, Ohio / Chicago: 1918-1943. Good. Hardcover. Oblong quarto measuring 11" x 7". String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 295 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1" x 2.5" and 4.5" x 4" with some captions. Cover and first page detached but present, small chips and tears thus good with fine photographs. A collection of photographs from Canton, Ohio in 1918 through 1943 showing a young woman's family and friends when she is a young girl and following her life until she has children of her own. There are two magazine cut outs showing the "Members of the Ohio State Dental Laboratory Guild and Their Ladies," in which the woman is seen with her husband F. C. Hoffman. The first few photos are of the woman's family standing solemnly together with very few smiles; however, the vast majority of the photos are of the woman and her friends having adventures together. Some of the photos are of the young people at a lake, swimming at the beach, camping in the woods, and visiting different cities and locations some of which include Chicago and Geneva, Ohio. Later photos show the group of friends getting older, having kids, and then their kids becoming adults in a 25 year time span. The woman's son at 18, is pictured wearing a World War II Army uniform in some of the last photos of the album. This extensive multiple era piece shows three decades of fashion, automobiles, and general tom-foolery that young people of the time got into in Ohio.
