Cambridge Photographic Club (Cambridge, Mass.)
This is one of six albums documenting the work of members in 1885, 1886-87, 1889, 1893, 1894, and 1895. This is an outstanding record of the viewpoints and techniques typical of amateur photographers of the period. The albums are also intersting for viewing architectural subjects. Individual photographers are unfortunately unidentified. However, it is believed that the 1885 volume may represent the work of Lois Lilley Howe, better known as the first woman to graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's School of Architecture. Howe was was also an amateur photographer. (Information supplied by Charles Sullivan, Director of the Cambridge Historical Commission).
