Leather photograph album with pre-cut windows for photographs or cartes-de-visite, as well as eighteen tintype portraits, and twenty-five black and white albumen prints mounted on card stock (cartes-de-visite). All photographs were removed by seller. The cartes-de -visite are stamped with the photographer’s name, most of which are based in New Bedford. These include E.S. Dunshee of 30 Purchase St., and Howland & Crowell, also of New Bedford, placing the origin of the album most likely in New Bedford. Other photographers were based in Boston.
