Scope and content

Reddish-brown leather cover with gold embossing that reads Photographs. Notations in black ink. Black construction paper-like pages. Many of the last pages are left blank. Some photographs are missing or have been removed. Many images significantly faded. Cover and pages are warped - almost as if they were wet and dried.

Notation on inside end page reads "Miss M. E. Thompson / August [?]th 1901 / Baby's Photos".

Photographs depict primarily family and mothers with children. Some also show plays being put on in a yard by the family, farms, and archery. They are all family snapshots taken mostly around the home.
Themes include: archery, dogs, cows, drama, family and children's portraits.
