Description

The artist's initialls F.S. are inscribed on the front cover of this album, which contains watercolors, pencil and charcoal sketches done in an amateur style. Some topics include ladies with hats in profile, gentlemen in profile, and a lady in costume with a parasol. Notably, the artist has sketched side views of two men, "Rich Tom Shaw" and "PoorTom Shaw" comparing the clothing. The style of costumes suggest a date in the 1880s. Initials on the back cover are G.F.S.
