There are about 140 snapshots that range in size from about 2.75” x 3.75” to 5” x 7” in this 7.25” x 11.5” photo album that is complete and shows work at a Civilian Conversation Corps in Idaho and California in 1935.
The Dealer that I bought this from, told me that the man that put this together was David Dongler from New Jersey. I did not find his name in the album though.
There are no annotations, but there are several photos that are identified within the negative and include the first photo in the album “Retreat – West Emerald Creek. C.C.C. Camp F-186 – Co. 12.30. Fernwood, Idaho.” Other photos include “Co. 1230 CCC Camp Bradley, Tahoe National Forest,” “St. Joe National Forest” (Idaho), “St Maries River,” “Auburn, California,” “American River Cal.” Etc.
I also removed a few from the corner tabs and there is an occasional identification, including a photo of a group of men in a truck which says on the verso “Just returning from work, Idaho, 1935, What a bunch of crunks!”
The album is complete and the photos are attached to the page with corner tabs and there are two loose photos.
President Franklin Roosevelt established the CCC in 1933 to allow single men between the ages of 18-25 to enlist in work programs to improve America’s public lands.
