[Photo Album]: African-American Family Photo Album

1930-1978.

Price: $500.00

Hardcover. Quarto. Red decorated boards with 3 steel rings, measuring 7" x 12". A collection of 83 photographs, both in color and black and white housed in a 3 ring binder photo album, without captions. Good only lacking the front boards with worn edges and tiny tears. The album, which was possibly assembled for the funeral of Mrs. Dorothy Gay of Lutcher, Louisiana in 1971 and continued after, as the church program is affixed to the rear board, assembles photos of an African-American family from what appears to be the 1930s until the 1970s. Some of the notable early photos include one from July of 1941 of a man in a tuxedo carrying a drum set, three from 1944 of some dapper gentlemen posing in front of a grand staircase, and one undated photo of a man in a nice looking car. The later pictures depict women in fancy fur coats, a 1978 graduation ceremony, and a little girl posing and singing.
