The album has about 275 black and white photos that mostly feature a trip through Glacier National Park and Canada from around 1918. Photographs measure between 2 x 2.75” up to 5.5 x 3.25” and are glued to the page and are mostly annotated. There are gorgeous photos of individuals on the trip setting up camp and playing around and beautiful scenery. Some pictures feature people feeding black bears that happened upon their camp in Yellowstone. Locations depicted include Dawson Pass, Red Eagle Lake, Sexton Glacier, Piegan Pass, Cracker Lake, Iceberg Lake, Granite Park, and Yellowstone Park. There are also photographs from Eatons’ Ranch in Wyoming which feature people riding horses. There are several loose pages and photographs at the beginning of the album, and there are some blank pages in the middle of the album and when the photos start up again towards the back, they are not identified. This album came from the estate of Charles Edward Hermann of St Louis, who became Chairman of the Board of Reliance Whiting Co., and an inventor of machines for crushing and air classifying rock and whiting.
