About This Item

New Mexico, Arizona And California, 1909. 10¼" x 13½". Rivet bound, full leather over flexible card. Six thick card leaves with 51 black and white silver gelatin photographs adhesive mounted both sides. All but two photos measure around 3 1/8" x 5¼". Album good with losses at edges and spine tips, chips at corners; contents generally near fine. An engaging album of a trip through the American West which shines in its 20 images depicting street, building or rail stop scenes. It begins in Las Vegas, New Mexico in May, 1909 where we see vivid images of the Hotel Castaneda and the train depot. The compiler then gives a few shots of Albuquerque as well as Laguna's "Indian Village" with a grouping of mud brick houses. They next went to the Grand Canyon, devoting 11 pictures to its majesty but also depicting the Hotel El Tovar and Hopi House. There are town views of Williams and Ash Forks, Arizona as well. The album then jumps to Venice, California with a great street level view of the Cabriella Ship Hotel and the Aquarium along the boardwalk. Scenery photos of Los Angeles, La Jolla and eight shots at Yosemite round out the group. This item is offered by Langdon Manor Books, LLC, antiquarian booksellers.
