VERY RARE, SUEDE c.1915 ANTIQUE FAMILY FULL PHOTO ALBUM LABELLED \"KODAKS\", 150+ PHOTOS

Great Variety of Photos, Many Civil War GAR Members Marching in Parade

DESCRIPTION:This is a very rare and nice family photograph album. Cover appears to be handmade, with an unusual soft suede leather cover. In addition, someone has hand written in ink \"KODAKS\" in fancy, large, artistic letters. At the turn of the century, PHOTOGRAPHS WERE COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS KODAKS, the most popular and new camera/technology of the time. Kind of like the Volkswagen, the camera commonly used by the masses. SO THIS IS PARTICULARLY INTERESTING WITH THE HAND DONE FRONT COVER.

The album pages are made of black construction paper, and it contains 48 pages. There are 1-3 photos on each side of every page. The album is almost entirely full, with only a couple page sides that are empty. I counted 152 photos in the album total. There are a variety of photo sizes, including 3 1/2\" x 2 1/2\", 4 1/4\", 4 1/2\", 5 3/4\". Also some 4 1/2\" x 6 3/4\" as well. Some of the photos have descriptions and dates and generally about 1915 or earlier.

PHOTO CONTENT IS VARIED AND EXCELLENT and includes 21 various pictures of patriotic period parade scenes and units, etc. THEY INCLUDE 5 PHOTOS SHOWING GROUPS OF GAR MEMBERS AND FORMER CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS. Almost every one of them has a bushy white beard!! Some of them are marching playing fifes, some are on horseback, some are marching, and one is carrying a sign saying \"Sherman\'s Bummers\". In 1915 most Civil War veterans would be at least 70 years older or older!!! TO FIND 1 PICTURE OF GAR SOLDIERS LIKE THIS WOULD BE AMAZING....5 DIFFERENT PICTURES IS INCREDIBLE!!!

Other photos are equally interesting: one with 2 people standing on a Northern Pacific caboose dressed with pistol holsters & bandannas; a couple have trolley cars in the pictures; a couple have great, close-up photos of very early antique automobiles; a few have boats in them; one has a great shot of a girl holding a cat; a couple of pictures of elephants and related signs; a picture of a sign relating to ostriches; at the beach; a number of them gardening; sailors in uniform; a couple of 2 youths \"fist fighting\" with each other....as well as a variety of other family photos.

Loaded with a variety of photos of all sizes, from full size cabinet photos down to Carte de Visite size. Some of the CdV\'s appear as early as Civil War vintage. ALL PHOTOS ARE CLEAN AND VERY CLEAR.

The album measures 6\" x 7\".

A very nice, unusual original homemade photo album of \"KODAKS\". I have never seen anything like this one, especially with the GAR related photos, and you will not get many chances to get something as unusual as this one.It is hard to describe and convey the details of this in an listing, but I think you will be pleased with it!!
