Jacksonville, Florida: 1898.
Hardcover. A small archive of 8 mounted albumen photographs measuring 5" x 5" with captions on the verso. Very good photographs with some rubbing and age toning. A collection of images depicting a trip to Jacksonville, Florida in the summer of 1898. The images show major buildings in the city including the bank and the armory as well as travelers exploring the sites. One of the photos show a small wooden store front with the caption, "a niggar [sic] store on a Sunday." A photo captioned "on Shell Road" shows two African- American men sitting on a rail with another white man a few feet away. Another image from the dock reads, "boats which come down the river loaded with watermelons." They feature images of the landscape as well writing, "common 'shade tree' in the South - palm tree of Florida."
A modest but interesting collection of late 1800s images of Jacksonville.
