Item Description: No binding. An archive of 48 gelatin silver photographs. 45 of the photographs are 8" x 10" inches, and are slightly curled and very near fine. Two are 7.5" x 9.5" and are mounted on board, and are fine. One is 14" x 11", printed on cardstock, and has a short tear, very good. There are a few duplicates, or more likely near duplicates taken with a fast shutter speed.Photographs by Dudley L. Stouch, a staff photographer for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, each with his stamp on the verso, many also with Stouch's holograph notations. The images are of President John F. Kennedy's visit to Central Pennsylvania to stump for the Democrats during the 1962 midterm elections. All but a few of the images are of Kennedy, a handful are of the press or of the crowd.The photographs detail Kennedy's entire trip, from his arrival at Capital City Airport by helicopter, delivering speeches there and in nearby New Cumberland, his motorcade to Harrisburg, and his speech at a Democratic fundraiser held in the state fairgrounds' Farm Show building. In addition to numerous photographs of Kennedy, the archive contains images of several important figures in Pennsylvania politics, both interacting and observing Kennedy, including US Senator Joseph S. Clark and Governor David Lawrence, whose reelection campaign was a focus of Kennedy's visit. Presumably Stouch took these in his capacity working for the Turnpike, but as near as we can determine, they constitute an unpublished and previously unknown collection of Kennedy photographs taken at the midpoint of his short lived presidency.

Item Description: State College, Pennsylvania, 1928. Hardcover. Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 14". String-tied brown suede over paper boards with a Penn State emblem on the front board. Contains ephemera and 200 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.75" x 2" and 7" x 9.5", some with captions. Very good album with worn edges and some small tears with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by Ray O. Freudenberger while he was beginning his college education at Penn State University in 1928. During his time at the university he was a part of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity as well as involved in numerous sports teams and clubs. The album begins with a large photograph of the original fraternity house (which was destroyed by fire in 1966, and rebuilt in 1968). This is followed by another large photo showing a group of fraternity men and their dates posed on the steps of the house. The following pages are full of autographs and messages from his fraternity brothers and other classmates which say things like, "My old pal! Let's roll a few games," and "O really do remember from one house party to another." The photographs show school events; track meets and football games, as well as dances and classroom photos. One section shows an R.O.T.C. group at attention in full uniform with blimps flying overhead. Freudenberger photographed the campus in various seasons including a large section of the campus in the winter of 1928. There are also photos of a University building during construction. Many of the photos show Freudenberger and his fraternity brothers around campus, at their house, and with dates before dances.Freudenberger was interested in the University's sports programs. He participated in some, and was also the manager of the men's basketball team. One section shows clippings of the football team and their schedule for the year of 1928. Additionally there are photographs and clippings from the boxing, track, rugby, and wrestling teams. The Alpha Gamma Rho house is shown in large photos featuring the interior and exterior, the lounge with fireplace, dining area, and formal living room. The final pages of the album are full of ticket stubs, programs, letters, and dance cards from his freshman year at Penn State. These include the winter sports schedules, a card announcing his admission to the freshman class, and Christmas cards from friends.Our research indicated he was living in the Pittsburgh area in 1941 and worked as an electric line engineer. An extensive look at the freshman year of a young man at Penn State University in 1928 with heavy emphasis on sports. Bookseller Inventory # 403756

Item Description: South Africa, 1952. Hardcover. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12.5". String-tied red leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 96 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 4" and 5.5" x 7.5", with captions. Album is very good with short tears and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an English woman during a trip to South Africa, then known as The Union of South Africa, a dominion of Great Britain, with her extended family, at least some of whom were Americans. The album takes place during the summer of 1952 and shows various tourist sites throughout Cape Town. The photos show the government buildings and monuments, including the Voortrekkers monument in Pretoria. The indigenous people of the country are seen throughout the album including numerous images of Zulus. There are photos of topless women with captions commenting on their appearance such as "the latest in hairdos," as well as the men and children of the community. Also documented is a trip to a local market with scenes of the travelers as well as the Zulu people purchasing goods. One photo of a Zulu child reads, "my pet picanninny," reflecting the casual racism of the era, which didn't prevent the company from attending a Zulu dance festival which featured "maidens," older women, and a religious group called the Scotchmen. The Zulu men and women are seen with drums and other instruments dancing in traditional clothing and headdresses. One caption reads, "past their heyday but still shaking a mean spear," under a photo of older men dancing.The trip also focused on the landscape of the area with views of the natural beauty of South Africa. One group of photos is captioned, "typical South African scenery with native huts nestling on hillsides," another reads "Indian Ocean at Scottburgh Natal." They took a guided tour up the Umfolozi River to see hippos and crocodiles; a hippo is seen here in the distance in one photo. The South African man who took them up river was captioned "a character." They visited a native village and posed by the huts, "of the beehive type" and with villagers. One photo is captioned, "view from inside the hut" another reads, "gone native" and shows the very well-dressed British people standing beside a thatched hut. Also featured are animals such as monkeys and numerous photos of the Drakensburg Mountains along with a brochure of the gardens there.An interesting photographic account of a South African trip with an emphasis on Zulu culture from a British tourist perspective.

Item Description: Washington DC, New York, Pennsylvania, 1932. Hardcover. Oblong quarto. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied red leather over paper boards with "School Day Treasures" stamped on the front cover. Contains 88 sepia toned gelatin silver and some black and white photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 2.5" x 4", most with captions. Very good album with some creasing, tears, and edgewear with near fine photographs.A boy's album kept between 1923 and 1932 during various events and schooling. The album begins in 1923 when the album owner attended a Citizens Military Training Camp. The photos show young boys in tents and "dress uniforms" performing "fatigue drills" and showing the boys standing in a line awaiting orders. From there it switches to a 1927 trip to Washington DC where they spent the summer at Fort Washington U.S. Military Training Camp. When off duty they saw the DC highlights such as the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building and even toured the District from the air in a plane. His college days are captured throughout, because of his job as an usher at the Carnegie Music Hall it is likely he attended Carnegie Mellon University in 1929. During the summer of 1929 he worked at a hotel in Lilydale, New York where he spent "most of [his] spare time in this canoe." These photos show pretty girls posing in bathing suits, boys working at the boathouse, and performing handstands on the beach. In 1931 he lived on Pelug's Farm at a campsite - he includes a hand-drawn diagram of the grounds later in the album. It isn't clear if he was working there but it seems probable. He took photos of his friends posing around the farm, animal life, and people swimming in the "ye olde swimming hole."An interesting collection of a young man's youth from childhood to young manhood, exhibiting his ties to the military and his early jobs.

Item Description: Massachusetts and Connecticut, 1920. Hardcover. Two volumes. Large oblong quartos. Measuring 9.5" x 12". String-tied black cloth over paper boards. The two volumes contains 325 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3" x 4" and 3.5" x 5.75", some with captions on the verso. Very good photo album with some tears with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England family during the first half of the 1920s. From the few captions it appears that many of the photos were taken in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The majority of the photos are taken on the seaside during a number of summers. These photos show the family in bathing costumes of the era playing on the beach and swimming. One photo shows two women lounging in the sand with a parasol. Most of the photos are candid snapshots and catch family and friends in the midst of conversation and games, such as an action shot of a game of leap frog. The New England coast is captured in lovely amateur snaps of seaside towns and crowds of people on the beaches, including West Haven Beach in Connecticut. Along with the vacation photos there are numerous shots of neighborhoods and family homes in different seasons. Some show a group of men working on the road in May with large swathes of the street torn up so that a track can be laid down, possibly for a trolley or streetcar. Another selection of photos show houses in winter covered in snow with views of barren trees lining the streets. There are also photos of a city taken looking down on the buildings from one of the taller buildings, showing bustling streets and billboards. Throughout the album small groups of family members are seen posing in nice clothes for various gatherings and events in front of family homes, farms, and in gardens. The generous number of snapshots and the nature of the photography suggests that the person behind the camera was interested in not only documenting their family but also perfecting their skills in the art of photography.An interesting and vast collection of better than average 1920s photography of a New England family.

Album is very good with some tears, with near fine photographs.A photo album documenting a 1957 visit by a group of Czechoslovakian Communists to England, possibly from Cedok, the state travel agency . There are 23 pages of partially annotated photographs and a title page that reads, "9-23 Srpna 1957" (August), with an image of the Sabena Airlines plane that brought them. The album takes place only a year after the Soviet invasion of Hungary. There can be little doubt that the 11 tourists were all party Apparatchiks, as attested by the photographic record of their pilgrimage to Karl Marx's grave in North London and the nearest thing they could find to British socialism, a well-stocked Cooperative shop. A corner of the first page has been removed, possibly to obscure the identity of those involved with the trip. The album shows the visitors at their "London villa, Hollybank," and includes photos of their visit to the Palace of Westminster, the Royal Festival Hall, and Buckingham Palace. There are also snapshots of Big Ben, Royal Guards, and Trafalgar Square, as well as other tourist places of interest. They also enjoyed the gaudier pleasures of Soho with a stop outside a Peep Show followed by the more appropriate trip to Highgate Cemetery to see the aforementioned grave of Karl Marx. There is also a seaside visit to a very chilly looking Margate, complete with 1950s bathing suits.An interesting political photographic record of Eastern European Communists touring a capitalist country.

Item Description: Providence, Rhode Island, 1929. Softcover. Two photo albums. Oblong quartos. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black textured leather over flexible paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 778 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs between the two albums, measuring between 2.5" x 3" and 5.5" x 8", some with captions. Both albums are very good with rips and tears on the boards; the later album's rear board is detached but present, with near fine photographs.Two photo albums kept by a member of the Parsons' family in New England between 1919 and 1929 mostly in Rhode Island and Connecticut. The albums contain a massive amount of photos, nearly 800, all capturing the upper middle class family, who made their money in the brass industry, through the decade of the 1920s. The family were avid boating enthusiasts and the album is full of photos of a variety of boats and small ships, as well as of people posing on and around them. Most of the vessels are named in the album including sailboats named *Swift Wind* and *Resolute*, as well as *Mischief* and the H.M.S. *Wraith*. These photos also show men in the rigging of the ships repairing and working on them as well as ships on land being built and painted. A variety of family members of all ages can be seen enjoying the excursions from grandma to the (obviously well-beloved) family dog. One group of photos shows the family on a trip to Quebec and includes the family boat, *Nada*, as well as photos of the various waterways. There is also a sketch of a sailboat laid-in, drawn on letterhead, which reads, "on board the Pontiac." Also documented throughout the album are a number of births in the family with photos of chubby newborns with their nurses, mothers, and fathers. Later in the album there are a number of photos of the USS *Shenandoah* which was the first of four U.S. Navy rigid airships. The 14 photos show the *Shenandoah* "tied up to the USS *Patoka*" docked in Newport in August of 1924. *Patoka* was the first ship used as an "airship tender" and in 1924 an "experimental mooring mast" was added to the oiler as well as a variety of accommodations for the crew of both the oiler and the airship. These photos show the *Shenandoah* moored in Newport shortly after the mast was erected. To test the mast and airship the *Shenandoah* flew from New Jersey to California and then continued on to Washington State, making it the first airship to fly across North America. A little over a year after it was constructed the airship was caught in a storm over Ohio and crashed.Also included in the album are obituaries for Phineas F. Parsons and Edmund Hayden (E.H.) Parsons, who appear to be the patriarchs of the family. Both men had ties with the brass industry. Phineas, the elder Parsons, who died at age 91 was a well-regarded member of the jewelry community with a career spanning over 60 years. E.H. died around the same time as his father after being "suddenly stricken" with an illness at 73. He spent 30 years in the brass trade before retiring to take over Locust Farms in Warwick. One photo shows the family on "Gramp's Birthday" on the farm in 1922.An interesting look at a New England family in the 1920s with an emphasis on the boating culture of a Rhode Island.

Theo Fritz in the early 1900s, showing travel on the East Coast, California, and Cuba. Fritz lived in Baltimore and attended Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, before attending Cornell University. He appears to have come from a family of some means and traveled extensive in the United States, with photos in this album of trips to Pennsylvania, Delaware, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana, as well as California and Cuba. The images all appear to have been taken between 1899 and 1912.Fritz was an avid photographer and member of the Baltimore Y.M.C.A. Camera Club who obviously enjoyed the natural beauty of Maryland. He and his family and friends spent a lot of time on the banks of the numerous waterways of Maryland with visits to Gwynns Falls, Gunpowder Falls, and Lake Royer with photos by the water, climbing rock faces, and boating in Royal Oak. There are also shots of various people playing baseball, tennis, and general conviviality, including a wonderful image of a smiling and obviously amused African-American man in a top hat with baseball equipment. A section of 10 photographs shows the city of Baltimore celebrating its Centennial with the city decorated and various buildings lit up.There are several sections of photos in New York State including New York City, Long Island, Albany, and Ithaca. Fritz attended Cornell University and there are a number of photos showing the university and the town of Ithaca. Fritz captures his dorm room, students studying and practicing the violin, along with his family and friends hiking, fishing, and canoeing. The images from New York City feature the Statue of Liberty, including a close up of her torch, as well as people walking on the then unfinished Williamsburg Bridge and at the newly opened Luna Park amusement park on Coney Island decorated with electric lights. One section has some lovely snapshots of Central Park as well as a boat trip on the Hudson River. Fritz and company visited Gettysburg, posing with cannons, and camping at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Included are images of young men in bathing costumes around their beach house, and of crashing waves on the shore. Fritz also visited Georgia and took photos of the "cotton industry" which included bailing and machinery, as well as photos of African-Americans working in the factories processing the cotton and in a chain gang wearing striped uniforms. The photos also show the Savannah River flood of 1912 with images of people standing on roofs and rowing small boats down city streets; one captures an African-American man carrying a white man on his back to avoid flood waters.Later sections include a trip to South Carolina with images of an early American aviation field, and a plane in midair. A New Orleans trip shows photos of St. Charles Avenue and Canal Street as well as riverboats on the Mississippi. Near the end Fritz documents a trip to Florida, including Tampa and Key West with a photo of a docked USS *Miami*, before heading to Cuba. There are numerous images of Havana Harbor, the coast, market places, tropical farms, banana groves, a Spanish cemetery, and even a shot of a baseball game being played at U.S. Naval base at Guantanamo Bay.An interesting assemblage of a young man's travels throughout the United States seen here through a massive amount of amateur snapshots of better than usual quality.
