A photo album featuring a young girl's adventures with her friends at school and at a girls summer scout camp in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey from 1919 through 1926. Though the girl's name is not written she writes "Chic" next to her photos, presumably a nickname. Many of the girls have nicknames written next to or around their photos some of which include Angel, Ma, Shacky, Crush, and Zib. There are a few boxing match photos of girls getting ready to fight. Most of the photographs are of the girls at camp dancing, going out in canoes, and sitting together. However, some of the photos are more risqué. One features a girl bending over with her skirt coming up while another page is captioned "Censored," with under and over exposed pictures of a girl wearing minimal clothing. Also included are several pictures of the different lakes and campgrounds in Palisades, New York that Chic and her friends visited. An interesting collection of a young girl's exploits in New Jersey and New York from 1919 through 1926. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
