Small 5.75” x 8” photo album with 44 photos, which show a soap salesman and his team as they travel around Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and New Mexico. Photos are held to the page with corner tabs, and some are inserted into handmade slots. One photo is missing from the page and six are loose.
Many of the photos are identified on the image in ink, and one loose photo is identified on the verso as being the Twin Falls Jerome Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho. Other identifications include Foot Bridge in Wyoming, typical Wyoming desert, just across the line of Wyoming and Utah, sheep herding in Wyoming, Mormon Temple, Brigham Young’s home, the graduating crew of 1927 in Ogden, Utah, days of the 49er’s parade in Ratan, NM, Moffat Tunnel crew, East Portal Colorado entrance to Moffat Tunnel, etc.
There are also several photos of a Camay Soap truck and one photo of the P and G – The White Naphtha Soap.
There is writing on the cover, that include Camay and the name B. J. Hammons, as well as some writing that I cannot make out.
An interesting album with some great pics of a traveling salesman in the 1920s.
