[Williamsburg, Virginia; Daytona Beach, Florida: circa 1920-1965].

Price: $1,200.00

Unbound. Group of 175 loose silver print photographs. Measuring from 1½" x 2¼". Most are snapshot size, with seven enlargements: two are approximately 8" x 10" and five are approximately 5" x 7". Generally very good with mild curling and wear. A large collection of African-American vernacular photography from a single family, likely from Williamsburg, Virginia, who had formerly been from Daytona Beach, Florida. The images include 12 WWII-era shots of African-American soldiers, segregated beach photographs (Memorial Beach near Williamsburg is identified on the verso of one print), occupational images, a series of family members posing near a new car, and vacations, primarily in Florida, likely near Daytona Beach, where they visited Sea-Zoo See Circus. Dates range from a series of three real photo postcards from the 1920s to snapshots dated up to 1965. A nice generation's long accumulation.
