[Photo Album]: 1920s Massachusetts Women

Hyannis, Massachusetts: [circa 1920s].

Price: $800.00

Softcover. Oblong octavo. Measuring 7¾" x 5¾". Ribbon-tied leather over paper boards with "Snapshots" stamped in silver on the front board. A collection of 146 sepia toned photographs measuring between 1¾" x 2½" and 3¼" x 4", with few captions. The album is very good with rubbing and some creasing, the photographs are near fine. A photo album of 1920s snapshot photographs from New England, including Hyannis, Massachusetts. Activities include swimming, camping (with what looks like a group such as the Girl Scouts or The Camp Fire Girls), and multiple events that apparently required parading around in costumes including in Native American dress. Additionally amateur performances are captured here with girls in costume acting in the woods. There are also a few photographs of the women with men in military uniforms, one shows a young man in camp playing a bugle. Towards the end of the album some of the women are posing with a man dressed in a Hyannis baseball uniform. An interesting assemblage depicting the activities of a group of young New England women in the Twenties.
