Softcover. Small oblong octavo. String-tied cloth over flexible boards. A few leaves detached, some edgewear on the boards, but sound and very good. Over 200 images pertaining to Paul A. Black and his life in Kansas during his teens and early adulthood. A couple of images lacking but almost entirely intact and virtually all captioned in white ink. A very interesting vernacular album centered around an All-American boy from Kansas's life and travels. Includes many images of a ranch setting on horseback, play-acting in cowboy or Indian garb, of a pet wolf, as well as climbing telephone poles, skinny-dipping, in high school (with friends, various girls, running the high hurdles) in Kingman, Kansas, Includes several airplane photos, Boy Scout images, some photographs of WWI-era Navy and A.E.F. soldiers (possibly relatives). Includes travel images of hunting in Montana, and several of traveling in Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming, some appreciative images of California girls on the beach, one of a coy young lady in a bathtub, one of men posing with a spool of Western Electric wire, scenes from Wichita (including an air field), Independence, and Parsons, Kansas. Also includes railroad and construction photos. Most of the images seem to be from the nineteen teens, but a few interspersed or at the end are from his later life in the 1920s and 30s. A really pleasing album with a generous selection of interesting western scenes capturing the imagination and interests of an All-American boy from Kansas.
