A BOY GROWS UP - BABY TO ADOLESCENSE -WEALTHY FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM
12.75 x 10.25” black bound album which contains over 300 black-and-white photos, the majority of which depict a young man named Roger from infancy to adolescence. His last name, nor place of residence is not noted, though one photo is of Bay View Beach, which is in Massachusetts, so that might hold a clue. Some of the photos of Roger as a baby, are on the larger size and appear to be professionally taken. The photos do not appear to be in a particular order, with Roger appearing at different ages throughout the album. As a child, Roger is often shown with his parents or with his nurse, and many times playing with his own toy horse-drawn carriages. Horses seem to have been one of Roger’s favorite things, as he is shown working with a deluxe horse transportation company when he is older. As he grows older, Roger is shown more often with friends and traveling. He traveled to Honolulu and Florida, and other members of his family are shown at the Simplon Pass, in Italy, and possibly in Egypt. Photographs measure between 2.25 x 3.25” and 9 x 7.5” and are glued to the pages, although some are taped towards the end of the album. The photos are accompanied by handwritten annotations which can be a bit difficult to read. The years of the photos range between about 1928 and 1939. There are a couple of loose pages and about 3 photos appear to be missing.
