Object Name Album, Photograph
Description Large photo album with purple canvas cover. Cover was originally purple velvet, but only a small patch remains on both front and back. Cover has a large nondescript silver crest at center. Wire metal latch for closing album is missing a piece at center. No title page. Seventeen album pages, each with either one or four cutouts housing various sizes of cabinet cards and tintypes. Around each cutout is a gold line trim. Pages have a light brown finish that give the illusion that they are made of wood. Images include mostly unidentified women, men and children, though there are some Wilbours. One loose photo found.
