[Photo Album]: Florida Photo Album
1920. Near Fine. Softcover. Oblong small quarto. Flexible black cloth boards with gilt "Scrap Album" on the front board, string-tied. Bookseller label from Chicago. Clipping about Florida affixed on first leaf, followed by 119 photographs. Various sizes, a few detached, slight wear to the boards, near fine. A photo album of better than average quality photographs, mostly of scenes in Florida between 1920 and 1924. All but a dozen or two of the photographs appear to be from Florida, mostly around Daytona and Ormand Beach. Most revolve around a single family who seemed to visit Florida annually, and display leisure activities (swimming in both ocean and rivers, fishing, beach scenes, horse-racing, children playing) and pictures of scenery including newly built vacation houses, girds laid out for development, and a sea shore hotel. A handful of images at the end of the album exhibit the family in northern winter scenes.
