There were handwritten notes under each photo, in two distinct hands. The first hand is in pencil, and is for the majority of the photos. The second hand is in ink and is only seen on a few of the photos. I have notated the notes to indicate if the second inked hand has written the note. My notes are in square brackets [ ] Words in curved brackets ( ) were in the original written notes in the album.
When I took the photos out of the album, many had inscriptions in period handriting - very neat and beautifuly written. Some were dated. I believe these were written by Edward Burd Edwards and that he was the original owner of the photo album.
