Martha Thacher, Kodaks. Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod

Description

An album of early Kodak snapshots (including bulls-eye type) dating probably to the 1890s to very early 1900s. Inscribed "Martha Thacher. Kodaks. Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod" no date. A note which accompanied the album states that there is a photograph of Mr. Perera as a baby, posed in the Thacher family cradle. The photographs are not identified, nor are they of oustanding pictorial quality, being rather clearly the work of an amateur, and possibly a young one at that. Many show possibly family members, pets, boating scenes, probably at Cape Cod, possibly some cranberrying views though this is not certain. Towards the end of the album, the photographs become more accomplished. These include some views of Cape Cod streets and towns and some mountain views.
