    I am honored to show off this mystery of an antique photo album from Scotland. Who are these people? It looks like that 3rd photo is of a man who is a "Scottish Right Worshipful Master Mason" which is initialed on the band on his chest. That's all new to me but that's what I found when researching.
    Update on research of the Master Mason. The photo might date 1906-1908 and this is the information that I copied from a website showing a card with the same mat around it:
    A slightly larger card, with a different pattern, and the text seems small, more cdv scale, though these are rare at this date.

      No one famous here.

      The last view is an interesting fraternal subject.

      Thank you Scott I thought it might be a military uniform

      I have just edited this due to the information about the 3rd photo in this group, that I found on the internet. He was a high ranking Mason.

      Is the album cover tooled leather? It is beautiful!
    6. TreasureTex TreasureTex, 2 years ago
      Watchsearcher yes it is for sure leather and looks tooled. I was going to buy it before I even opened it to see the pictures. It still smells like leather and it's gorgeous but not in new condition for sure. I gave $20 for it at Goodwill and they said it sat there all day with no interest in it until I said SOLD! Then everyone said they wanted it.
