Item #180

There are forty-eight sepia toned photographs measuring 2” x 3”, and one panorama measuring 2” x 5.375”, in this neat little album from Buffalo, NY, 1901. The album is in the form of a clothbound book, measuring 5.25” x 7.25”, and has been wonderfully preserved. The 24 pages are thick cardstock with inset frames fit for the 2” x 3” photos, and the panorama is attached with photocorners to the inside back cover. No pages nor photos are missing; the album is complete and a wonder to see. The inside front cover has the only annotation in the book, reading: “Souvenir of a trip to the Pan American and Niagara Falls. June 1901. and a Merry Christmas from Frank & Lena to Will & Fran.” The album begins with a photo of the Statler Hotel along the railroad tracks, which was located one block from the main entrance to the exposition. Pictured in the album are sculpture parks, city street and rooftop views, fountains and fantastic architecture created for the fair. Also pictured is a bullfight, a group photo with matadors dressed in costume, a square with ice and snow sculptures and first nations people walking about, and a big sports arena. The album then moves to beautiful views of Niagara Falls and the surrounding wilderness, rivers running along railroad tracks, the forest, big bridges and a large ship, and ends with a beautiful long-exposure panorama of the Pan-American buildings all lit up at nighttime. An incredible and impressive moment at the turn of the century, and beautifully intact.
