The American Photograph Album: cover, sides, etc.

The American Photograph Album: cover, sides, etc.

I had just 3 days to scan two Civil War era photo albums! Here are the front, back, and sides of this first embossed leather photo album with a metal clasp… isn’t it lovely?

I’m officially kicking off the digital downloads section of my shop with these high res scans. Inside were dozens of pictures of women, children, and Confederate soldiers… but that’ll be my next post!

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
