Album has a heavy textured dark brown covering and is held together with two metal brads. Album has 82 olive green pages; one of the pages is blank. Album contains 81 mounted black-and-white photographs. Photographs include a number of room interiors from the Federal era, focusing primarily on stairways and doors. The album alsco contains photographs of Federal-era house exteriors, also emphasizing the doorways. None of the items shown were manufactured by A. H.
