A WONDERFUL LEATHER BOUND PHOTOGRAPHALBUM with BEAUTIFUL BRASS CLASP HARDWARE & FILLED WITH 40 EXCEPTIONALLY NICETINTYPES & CARTE DE VISITE IMAGES (many identified by first & last name)- Civil war through Victorianera
This is one of he best albums I have ever offered on ebay. The 61/4 x 5 1/4 inch leather “book style” album with stamped giltlettering & decoration is great .....and the brass & cobalt blueglass clasps are intact & quite unusual .
Of the 40 images inside the album............15 are CDV & 25 areTINTYPE
Many of the images are identified by name in (light) handwrittenpencil on the white page mount. The names are CALDERWOOD , BROPHY , MULLIN & WALERMAN.
Most of these images are from the Portland & Camden , Mainearea ...........I also found Boston & Davenport , Iowa. There may be images from other states ....and some may havenames written directly on the image mount. I did not take outevery photo to check....for fear of tearing the paper inserts.
