Eureka Springs, Arkansas Vacation Photograph Album, circa 1901. Arkansas: No Publisher, 1901.

5 ” x 7 ” Photograph Album; original leather cover missing, remnants on spine. Heavy craft paper leaves with photographs glued in. Fifty-eight (58) 5 x 3 black and white photographs. The first photograph in this album shows railroad tracks and a sign which reads: “State Line Arkansas;” the next two photographs are also of the same tracks and include the approaching train which is consistent with a freight train from the turn of the century. All of the photographs in this album are of rural country settings and rolling mountains, and include activities which would suggest a vacation: swimming, boating, and camping scenes. The men are dressed in shirtsleeves, high starched collars, and boater hats which date the photographs to the late 1890’s or early 1900’s. Two photographs look down on an unidentified township. Several photographs capture a single person with a camera; the cameras appear to be early Brownie and Kodak models circa 1900. In another photograph, a woman in mutton sleeves and “Gibson Girl,” rows on a lake; her male companion and two children sitting opposite her in the boat. This is possibly a vacation to Eureka Springs, Arkansas – a popular vacation spot at the end of the 19th century.

Price: $250.00
