[Photo Album]: 1940s New England Fishing Trip and Family Photos
Hartford, Connecticut: 1940s. Oblong quarto. String-tied brown leather album with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover measuring 11.5" x 15". Very good with wear on the board edges, loose pages, and some missing photos. A photo album containing 137 sepia toned or black and white photos in various sizes ranging from 3.75" x 2.75" to 3.5" x 5" without captions. The first half documents a fishing trip near Hartford, Connecticut, with photos of dozens of fish strung up, along with images of the fishermen and the occasional woman who caught them. The unnamed lake they were working can be seen here with nicely composed views of the New England landscape and the sun setting over the water. After a few blank pages, the album pick up again with a parade with nurses, men dressed as Native Americans, and a dog procession. The album concludes with a picnic, girls posing in fancy dresses (presumably for a school dance), and images of the family home throughout the seasons. An interesting vernacular photo album that captures the culture of 1940s New Englanders on the home front.
