Physical Description

Hard back photograph album, half-bound with maroon watered fabric, black leather spine and corners with decorative gold embossing. Gilt edges to the text block. H. 24.5 x W. 19 cm
Each leaf is composed of a cardboard backboard overlaid with a thinner card mount on recto and verso, tacked down on the short edges, allowing photographs to be eased out from the long edge. Displays four photographs to an opening (2 to a page, each mount aperture sized W. 4 ¼ x 2 ½ inch).
Leather spine missing, revealing paper substrate. Some slight foxing and cockling to the leaves thorughout. Top and bottom edges of the boards bumped and fragile with some loss to the leather.

The photographic prints are all monochrome, gelatin silver, quarter plate contact prints, with some fading to the images but otherwise in good condition.
