No name, dated 1921-1930, with a single photo dated 1915. Cord-bound, production photo album, 28.3 by 18.8 cm, 80 pages [40 leaves] of which 39 are used. Minor bumping at the corners and a couple of small stains on the back cover. Otherwise, very good with no missing photographs. This album relates the childhood of its two main subjects, Mary and Pat. No last names are given, but the presumed sister and brother are the primary focus between 1921 and 1930, along with photos of several other children and teens. While there are snapshots of a couple of adult women—probably Mary and Pat’s mother and grandmother—there are only two images of a single adult male—presumably the grandfather. The only photo with a last name is a boy called Tom Fuller. A friend? Cousin? This young man with the common name offers more questions than answers. Other than a page of photos from Niagara Falls in 1927, no definitive location is noted. However, photos taken at the High Rollway Spring (on the Manistee River), Bills Lake, Rud’s Lake (Rudd Lake), and Oxbow, most surely place the locations in the lower peninsula of Michigan. A mention of “Lake Drive” on a couple of photos could indicate that they were from Grand Rapids, though there’s more than one Lake Drive in the state. The album showcases Mary, Pat, and the kids swimming, canoeing, rowing, fishing, playing and posing with their dogs and cats, climbing trees, posing in their good clothes, and other numerous shots of the kids enjoying the great outdoors and having a great childhood.
