Description

This album is a salesman's order book for the Frank Cousins Art Co. of Salem, Massachusetts. It contains 128 black and white 7.5 x 9.5 inch photographs of Colonial architectural details, including building exteriors, doorways, railings, interior views, wallpapers, stairs, windows, fireplaces, brass knockers, gardens, and tombstones. The locations of the buildings include Salem, Waltham, Marblehead, Danvers, and Peabody, Massachusetts. Page numbers are inscribed on the photographs, and an index to the first 101 provides order numbers and identifications. Many of the buildings are the work of Salem architect Samuel McIntire, who died in 1811. Photograph #68 is his tombstone. The photographs in the album date from approximately the 1890s to the 1900s.
