Regular priceSale price
Here we have an antique photo album from the early 1900s with a wide range of wicked activities represented. Let's just dive into the themes within this old beauty, shall we?
1. Indian Motorcycle with Sidecar: The entire getup is outstanding, including the dude with the newsboy hat and cigar. (1 pic)
2. Old Car Racing Action: These are my favorite, even though the pics are rather small. Those missile body styles with the old wheels. There's even a shot of what looks like an ambulance stationed on the track. I think someone zigged when they shoulda zagged.
3. Railroad Themed: Various photos including train cars, tracks and group photos in front of steam engines.
4. Ships - Multiple photos of freight ships.
5. Camping - Various photos containing people with tents, canoes, and caught fish.
6. Orchestra - Multiple larger photos of orchestras in various locations.
7. Military - Multiple photos of a marksman shooting a gun, along with a couple photos in a military training setting.
8. Portraits - Various portrait photos of family, ranging from young children to ancestors.
The antique album of 138 photographs came out of a Minneapolis estate. There are photographs representing Minnesota locations. My guess is the time period hangs around the 1920s.
The leather(?) bound album measures 10" tall, 13" deep and about 1 1/2" deep. Only about half of the pages contain photographs. Some of the photographs are better secured than others. All photographs have general wear from age and storage. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on this antique photo album full of life.
Minnesota is cool place to grow up and grow old. The vitality represented in this old album is proof. A full life indeed.
