(Photo album): Family's Photo Album of Camping Trips and other Adventures
Colorado / New York / Pennsylvania / Delaware / Connecticut, 1902. Very Good. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 7". Gray paper wrappers . Contains 61 black and white gelatin silver, cyanotype, or sepia toned photographs measuring between 0.5" x 0.5" and 4.5" x 3" with some captions. Some chips with edgewear thus a very good album with fine photographs.A photo album containing pictures from between 1896 and 1902 of a group of young people traveling and camping in Colorado, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Connecticut. Within these locations, the travelers visit the Blue Mountain Falls, the Catskill Mountains, the Bushkill Mountains, and the Hotel Rexmere, among others. Pictures show them camping with handmade tents, climbing rocks to sit next to waterfalls, dancing in the woods, and always smiling. There are also several pictures showing them riding horses or standing next to them as this was the best method of travel to various locations where a carriage could not fit, as well as a couple pictures of a tandem bike. While most of the photos are taken over rivers, in front of hotels, and setting up the camp site, there are a couple of photographs captioned "House of Hanna, 1902". Several photos are cutouts in shapes like circles, diamonds, and some are trimmed around the person's shape. These cutouts are seen more in the pictures of the children later in the photo album. The children are mostly posed with big smiles in cyanotype photographs. On the last page, incongruously there are two magazine cut outs of a town in Kashiwabara and an Asian man holding two water buckets on a stick. An interesting and relatively collection of photographs of travelers off on outdoor adventures together and later with their children.
