APTED FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM WITH GENEALOGY FROM EARLY 1800s to 1945
13.25 x 10.25” black string-bound photo album with “Photographs” in gold and an embossed golden design in the center of the cover, with embossed framing around the edges of the front cover. Contains around 90 black and white photos (many photos are copy photos of 19th century images) and cabinet cards depicting members of the Woodruff, Apted, and Bradford families from the 1800s to around 1945. Most of the photos are presented as portraits of individuals, all of which are accompanied by handwritten annotations identifying parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and even great great grandparents of the family. There are also photos of the houses, and the families seem to have stayed around the areas of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and New London, Connecticut. Yet there are also photos of children and a lovely photo of Florence Nan Apted in her wedding dress; on the back of one of the photos, it states that Florence married Percival C. Woodruff on June 18, 1924. Photographs measure between 1.5 x 2.5” and 9.5 x 6” and are held to the pages with corner tabs, accompanied by handwritten annotations. There are around 16 loose photos, and at least 6 photos may be missing. Tucked away in the album is a folded loose leaf paper containing a typed genealogy of the Apted, Webster, Powers, and Delamane families. Many of the pages are loose and crumbling at the edges.
