Description

Large carte de visite album, with spaces for two per page. Also included are two tintypes. Those dated are from the 1890s, but some may be earlier. In the front is a written note: "Sophia (Tileston) Brown's album, came to Edith Crehore 1896 in death of Harriet L. Brown. Contains pictures of the friends and pupils of 'Aunty' Brown and her daughters Harriet Louisa, Ellen Sophia." A further inscription reads, "E.C. filled it up with family pictures of Minns, Tileston side of the house." Family names here are Robbins, Fearing, Coolidge, Thayer, Thacher, Davidson and Brown.
