1892 Antique Leather Photo Album 29 Cabinet Card Photograph Collection Unique

Antique Leather Photograph Album Dated December 25, 1892

Acquired from an estate in Evansville, Indiana

27 Cabinet Photographs mounted on cardboard

Contains rare photograph of former Virginia Tech president, John McLaren McBryde

The album is in very poor condition with a broken spine. The pages have broken out, but they are in good condition. Some of the frames have torn at the bottom. However, the interesting part of this collection is the amount of photographs, all of which are in very good to excellent condition. I am not dealer or expert. I endeavor to describe each item as well as my limited knowledge allows.

Handwritten on inside cover (as best as I can decipher)

To Mr. H. A. Hymes

from his friend

Mrs. J. P.___
