Item #540

There are thirty, mostly 4.75” x 6.5” (a handful are slightly smaller) photos showing damage from the 1910 Cartago, Costa Rica earthquake, one of the strongest ever recorded in that area. The inscription on the inside cover reads “Miss Alcesta Beck, June 5th, 1910 – Lest you forget.” Two photos are credited to H.W. Rudd, Costa Rica, otherwise the album is not identified, though one photo shows the wreckage of Weldon’s Hotel de Cartago. The album measures 7” x 9.5.” The photos are glued to the page, and two photos facing each other look to have stuck together at some point and have a dime sized spot on each image. The front cover is detached and both covers have tattered edges. The cardboard pages are slightly warped. Photos show earthquake damage, people praying, a boy having his foot looked it, etc. A fascinating look at damage caused by Mother Nature.
