African American Photograph Album
Scope and Contents
This photograph album was kept by an Arican American family in the 1920s. The location is not captioned in any of the photos, but a photograph of men in their dorm room shows an "Orlando" pennant in the background, so it's possible the family was from Florida. Other photographs show boats docked in a harbor, portraits of a family posed around their home, and candids of family and friends. Some of the photographs show a family farm with people working, posed around a new car in a field, and one which shows a young woman in a dress in a pin-up style pose. Most of the photographs show well-dressed people around their home in fashions of the time.
- circa 1920s
