Album has brown leather cover with embossed design on the front and back. Leather is in fair condition, with some wear all over, but especially on the spine, edges and corners. Leather on spine is very distressed and was repaired years ago with a strip of fabric glued on the front crease of the spine.

Album has printed ivory vellum lining on inside of front and back covers. All pages are present and intact but are unattached from the spine. The edges of the pages are gold gilt which has retained some of its brightness. The album originally closed with two decorative gold colored metal clasps, one of which is still firmly attached, while the other is missing.

Album contains 17 pages of images and cards from the early 20th century. There are a variety of postcards, stamps and images of people and places in popular tourist towns in America. There are two vintage Confederate flag postcards, one of Jefferson Davis and one of the Prayer in Jackson’s Camp. Other scenes include boats on the Mississippi River; Natchez, MS; African American topics; Mardi Gras in New Orleans; cotton fields in the South; White Mountains in New Hampshire; cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C.; Lake George, NY; Boston Harbor; Philadelphia; the Capitol in Harrisburg, PA; Waterbury, CT; Atlantic City and Wildwood, NJ; New York City; Charleston, SC; New Orleans, LA, George Washington’s Mount Vernon; and several albumen photographs of unidentified people and scenes. There are a few small Christmas cards.

Album measures approx. 11” x 9” x 2 ½”.

This is a great find for a collector of vintage American postcards.  [SM]
