Content Description

c.1890-1910. Personal photograph album consisting of twelve leaves and a front cover all made of board and unbound. The cover is decorated with a watercolor painting of a woman in a purple Victorian era dress holding a bouquet of flowers with the title, "Snap Shots," in the upper left corner. The leaves contain 4 to 8 gelatin silver chloride prints adhered to the board, plus two loose photographs, totaling 52 prints. None are identified, but they appear to be images of the colonial district of the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Several photographs document a residence in a rural area, presumably outside of Cartagena. The owner of the album is unknown as is the photographer. 48 total photographs.
