Large 1860s leather photo album and CDV photos. Although having age-related condition issues, this was a high quality album when new, probably owned by a wealthy family. There is one guy holding a quill pen.. Maybe he was an author?
Most seem to have been taken in West Chester, Chester County, Coatesville. Album is about 50% full.
Surnames I can read are: Davis, Thornbury, Nyman, Woodward, one other that I can't make out. Album is about 11" x 8.5" x 2 when closed.The interior is in generally very good antique condition, the front cover is detached, clasps are gone, and the leather on the spine is detached, but has been placed inside of the cover page. The CDVs all appear to be in very good or better condition..
I see one with an obvious stain, but other than that they look good. I also slid out about 8..... 4 from the top rows and 4 from the bottom rows..
And none of those were trimmed.
