No date or names of family found, although a few dates on some photos indicate this is post 1933, presumably mid 1930s, maybe early 1940s. Flexible card covers. String tied binding. Folio. 63 leaves. Various sized photos throughout, most around 2 ½ by 4 ½ inches, although a few are panoramic shots and some are smaller. Most appear taken by the family, with some appearing to be souvenir photos purchased on the trip. The majority of photos depict areas of Western United States, including Colorado and the Pikes Peak Railroad and various mining operations, Bryce Canyon, Salt Lake City and Zion in Utah, the Grand Canyon, areas in California along the coast, Yosemite, Washington, areas in and around Alberta, Canada, Yellowstone and other areas. The subject is mostly scenery with the family members often posed in the front, as well as a few shots of buildings, small western towns or cities, including those in California. Laid in at the rear is a Shell map of the United States with the route driven apparently traced in ink. A small record of expenditures, filled in by hand is also present, as well as two souvenir letters from Butte, Montana printed on copper. GOOD+ condition. General fading, minor curling, scuffing and edgewear to the covers. Paper toned in the interior, although the photos are crisp.
