Velvet Victorian Photo Album

We found this fantastic velvet Victorian album filled with photographs of children, wedding couples and gentle-ladies. The album is a special type for two reasons. Firstly, it is a stand-up album, placed on a stand to make it easy to view the photos. Secondly, it has a print of a Spanish American War & WWI US Navy cruiser, the USS Columbia. The USS Columbia was launched in 1892, commissioned in 1894 and sold in 1922. To find an old photo album with a naval vessel on the cover is truly rare.
Victorian Photo Album ($175.00)
Inside we found many wonderful cabinet card photos, all from the 1890s. One great attribute of cabinet cards, and their smaller brethren the carte-de-visite (CDV), is that many have the name of the photographer on the front and back as well. These photos are from the Chicago area.



There was also one fantastic tintype of three dapper gentlemen in white caps.
These photos, and many others, are available in our Los Gatos shop. Prices range from $5.00 to $25.00 each.
