The album is in good shape and it does not look like any of the photos have been taken out of their pockets since they were first inserted. The photos appear to range from the late 1850s, with most from the 1860s and 1870s. All the photos are 2 1/2 x 4" and there are 4 to each page. The total number of photos is 117. I haven't finished listing them all yet but here's a start….. First though, Here are most of the photos laid out - you can see what a treasure trove I've saved from being lost!
