    Hello fellow collectors!!

    I recently acquired this old photo album that's 95% filled with photos from what appears to be the late 1800's and early 1900's.

    Most are CDV photos. In the third frame you'll notice there are 3 tin photos as well. Unfortunately, I'm only able to post just a few of these photos. There are just so many wonderful photos in this album. Wish I could post them all.

    I really loved the last photo in this post. It appears to be a class photo from a school. But, not completely sure of that.

    There were many old postcards stashed inside this old photo album. I'll have to post those later.

    Most all of the old photo albums I find are either totally trashed and missing all or most of the photos. This one is still in fairly nice condition and retains all of it's photos. A very lucky find for me indeed!!!

    Thanks for stopping to have a look!!

    Scott

      Beautiful quality, very nice collection, thanks for sharing, Scott. :)

      It is pretty typical to find the old photo albums picked through.

      Most collectors have fairly specific "wants" rather than entire albums. I enjoy looking through full albums-- often there is one unusual/ desirable enough image to make the entire album a worthwhile purchase.

      Roy,
      Yes, all of the people in the photos of this album have such serious expressions. Apparently, it was not proper to smile for photos in that period of time:).

      Judy,
      Thanks so much!! I feel very lucky to have an album of photos that haven't been picked thru.

      Thanks so much for the lovely comment!

      Scott,
      Thanks so much for stopping in. you're absolutely correct about these old photo albums being picked thru. Most I see are either empty or only have a few remaining photos. My favorites in this album would be the small tin photos.

      I used to restore these for Brunk Auctions, along with any other small cloth covered antiques they needed restored. I also made the rounds in Phoenix, and picked up albums to recover. I tore them down to bare bones and redid from there. Somehere here I have a sample portfolio with photos before and after I took with me when I went around gathering My girls were small and I did it to supplement my income anyway I could. I was good at it!! Of course, the albums I picked up were empty. But I ended up collecting old photos! It was fun seeing a complete album. That one is a treasure to own. . I was quite busy doing that--then the albums were so pretty that sitting around they were eye-poppers! I used materials that were close to the type of material used way back and replaced all the hardware and worked with teeny brass nails with roundish heads. Doing the spines was the hardest. Lucky you to have found this one!!!

      PostCardCollector,
      I would love to see some of the photo albums that you've restored. I love bringing old items from the 1800's and early 1900's back to life so that others can enjoy them many years down the road.
      I think these old photos and photo albums are just so wonderful. To just have that small window into the past is quite a thrill to me. I'l post pictures of the old postcards that were with this album when I get the extra time. Hopefully, very soon.
      Thanks very much for the wonderful comment, the appreciation and for stopping by to admire my photo album. Very greatly appreciated!!

      Fantastic find! All complete and in such a nice condition, I'd love to find one like yours :-)
    18. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Thanks Kyra!!
      I've seen a lot of these over the years, but most are practically destroyed and/or stripped of most of the photos. Not to mention way over priced! I was at the right place and the right time for finding this one.

      Such a great find!! I love looking through old photos and just trying to imagine life as it was in the photos. A great piece of history. Thank you for sharing!
    23. myoldkyhome myoldkyhome, 4 years ago
      That is an amazing find! I have a few albums and all only have a few photos. Thanks for sharing.

      Very Neat Find JScott...!! Really like the cover..
    25. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      btrue,
      Thank you very much!! I love looking at the old photos as well. It sort of gives us a small look into the window of past history. I can only imagine what life was like for these good people. Thanks for the wonderful comment, the love and for taking time to stop in. Very much appreciated!!!
    26. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      myoldkyhome,
      Thank you! This is my only vintage photo album. I've came across many during my searches, but most were in such horrible condition, already stripped of their photos and not to mention that they were way overpriced!
      Thanks for the comment, the love and for stopping by. Always a pleasure to have you drop by.
    27. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Bensallright,
      Thanks very much!! I totally agree with you about the cover. That's actually what initially caught my eye. Thank you for the comment, the love and for stopping by. Very much appreciated!!!!

      So amazing! I join everyone else saying GREAT FIND. I would love to see every page. Maybe you can post a few now and then for the next week or longer? or so?

      valentino97 - that is a great idea!

      Hi Scott,
      Very cool find. I don't buy these because I can't get past the fact I don't know who they are. LOL
      I'm thankful that you do get them and share them.:)
    32. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      valentino97,
      Thank you!! I'll go ahead and post a few more pages of these wonderful photos. Thank you so much for the comment, the love and for stopping by. Always greatly appreciated!!

      OneGoodFind,
      Thanks very much!!! I'm always fascinated with the way they dressed, their facial expressions and poses. So very different from today. Thanks for the comment and for stopping by. Always a pleasure to have you drop in!
    34. btrue, 4 years ago
      Scott,
      Is there any indication of a family name on any of them?? Thanks for posting the other ones!

      This is a super album~!! I love looking at old photographs. It's like looking at the stars and going back in time.
    36. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Barbara,
      Yes, there is a family name. The postcards, that were stashed inside the album, are addressed to Delilah Huffer of Michigantown, IN. There is also one addressed to Master Albert Huffer of Michigantown, IN. So, we'll assume the family name of these folks was Huffer.
    37. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Bonnie,
      Thank you! I love having that little window into the past. Photos, such as these, are the only way for us to have a look into past history. I too love looking at these old photos. It's just very intriguing to me!
