[Photograph Album]: 110 Photos of a Midwestern Farm Family

[Circa 1930s].

Price: $600.00

Hardcover. Oblong 12mo. (100)pp. String bound with flexible cloth boards with half the interior pages empty or unused. Very good with general rubbing to the edges and some fraying at the corners. A photo album of 110 black and white images, most approximately 4" x 3" with some larger and smaller, of a Midwestern farming family with several photos labeled in ink at the margins. The album includes numerous shots of the farmer, his wife and children, and other relations posing for the camera, at a wedding, playing croquet, and horsing around with children. A nearly equal number of the photographs show livestock, hay bales, farm hands working in the fields, potato harvesting, horse-drawn wagons, period automobiles, and three images of what looks to be Yosemite National Park, including one of Old Faithful during an eruption. An evocative portrait of family life in the Dust Bowl during the Depression.
