Description

Album of fourteen black & white photographs titled "My cousins and my Aunts in the Hills of Massachusetts, December 25, 1912." A printed tribute in the front is written "To my dear Aunts and all of my New found Cousins who so royally Entertained me on the occasion of my visit in lovely June 1912. Good Health, long life, happiness." Signed William Truman Barnum. In the back is a second handwritten inscription that reads, "I extend the hand of Friendship to my Aunt Ann from William Truman Barnum, Chicago, ILL, 5843 Winthrop Ave. I wish you a Merry Christmas." Photographs of people and houses in an unidentified location in Massachusetts, presumably the family of William T. Barnum. A fine quality amateur photo album useful for study of period dress and lifestyle.
