Price: $1,600.00

Hardcover. Large oblong quarto. String-tied quarter leather and cork over boards with "Photographs" in gilt. 210 images, mostly gelatin silver, in a wide variety of sizes, mostly larger but one as small as .75" x 1" to as large as 8" x 10". Small scrape on front board, near fine, internally the images are fine. Well-captioned in white album ink identifying the subjects and their locations. Compiled by a ham radio operator, the album begins with a large group shot of radio operators with badges dated in 1940. Several following shots are from Newton, North Carolina, the compiler's home town, the photos are taken from "Skipper" presumably the compiler's car. These are followed by images of many individual operators, some taken in person at meetings at Canobie Lake, New Hampshire and Rosenberg, Texas; and several others seem to have been sent to the compiler from operators from Cincinnati, Galveston, Indiana, New Zealand, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New England, California, and many other locations. A nicely composed album of a specific type of community in a very narrow time period from late 1940 to mid-Summer 1941.
