Approximately 177 photographs, most 3 X 4 in. (good contrast); 7 X11 in. scrapbook album, black cloth boards detached pages (no spine). This album formally belonged to Ralph Blaisdell (1864-1949) a Railroad executive for a number of Western railway companies and later in life with the Florida East Coast Railway while living here in my hometown of Saint Augustine, Florida. This album covers his and his families’ travels and activities during the early 1920’s. They were heavily involved in sports and politics which reflect the subject matter of this wonderful album.
Hand decorated folk art highlights this album showing rare unpublished images of VP Calvin Coolidge at Golf tournament and President elect Warren Harding, including an exceedingly rare photo of Harding giving his inauguration address speech. But before I digress...."
