1940s ACADEMY OF HOLY NAMES TAMPA FL PHOTO ALBUM
14 leaves/28 pages,spiral-bound between wooden panels, labeled ‘Snapshots’ and bolstered on the front by two small cross planks, two studs apiece.
Front cover has a clipping pasted on: a view of the Academy of the Holy Names, in Tampa, Fla. - which, according to Wikipedia, was founded in 1881, 2nd-oldest high school in the state.
This is the school-memory album of Ms. Caroljane Donovan. The album opens with the lyrics to the ANH school song. 10 pages of photos follow, two to a page, of Caroljane and her classmates - all of the twenty-eight photos measure 2 3/8” x 3 3/4”, and are glossy b & w. These document her freshman year. Academy Day, 1948 is then covered over the following four pages, again two snaps per page, including one of Caroljane with her father, other proud dads in the background. The last 11 pages are blank.
Two ephemera have been tucked in:
One handwritten note, explaining some kind of knitting pattern.
A typed letter, in envelope, from the Reverend Henry J. Cromey O.M.I., on the letterhead of the Oblate Scholasticate, in the District of Columbia.
