Book Description Maine, 1960. Condition: Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with gilt decorations. Contains 208 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and 3 later color photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3.5" x 5.5" with captions. Photo album is very good with detached but present pages, small tears, and spotting with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England family between 1902 and 1960. The album details a variety of family events including trips and vacations. The album is not in chronological order and begins with photos of a Boy Scout Troop from Dracut, Massachusetts between 1923 and 1924. These photos show the troop in group photos during their "1st Overnight Hike" in New Hampshire. The boys are seen cooking, starting fires, and hiking in candid snapshots. The next section documents a trip to Quebec in 1902 with photos of Montmorency Falls and the Quebec Zoo. In 1919 the family who kept the album bought a home in Dracut, Massachusetts. The photos document the changes they made to the house, including the addition of a sun porch, and the changing of seasons. One caption reads, "several large Baldwin apple trees in full bloom added to the beauty of the spring." The album shows the beauty of the New England landscape with photos of waterfalls, rock faces, and beaches as well as working on the family farm.One section of six photos shows the welding of the Portland to Montreal pipeline in 1941. The pipeline began as a response to the oil shortages Canada was facing in World War II. The decision was made to take crude oil from Portland, Maine to Montreal with a pipeline which measured approximately 236 miles. The photos here show the construction of the pipeline, digging ditches, laying pipe, and welding. One photo shows the joining of the pipe at "the line," the border between the U.S. and Canada. Another photo shows an aerial view of the pipe "looking North."The later part of the album is a collection of travel and family photos through the 1960s. Many of the photos are taken in the 1940s depicting picnics, campsites, and road travel, including a section of photos from a camping trip to Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine, in September of 1942. These photos show people hiking up the Dudley Trail featuring snapshots of the Knife Edge peak and Chimney Pond. Later in the album the family visit Keene, New Hampshire and New York as well. The New York photos show Radio City's ice rink, Grant's tomb, and the library at Columbia, among other tourist sites. A few of the photos are in color from the 1960s and show an older couple posing together. An extensive New England family album featuring boy scouts and the homefront during World War II.

Book Description Prentiss & Gifford, W.&S. Photographers, [Frank] Jacobs Photos, P.I. Building, 1918]., [Portland, OR & Seattle, WA:, 1918. Oblong 4to. 33 original photos, 30 backed in linen, 1 a mounted cabinet photo, most w/ photographers negative numbers, and a couple with captions in lower fore-edge, sized from 6 x 8.25 in. up to 8 x 10.5 in., 1 panoramic double-page photo sized 17.25 x 7.25 in. (minor dampstaining & soiling to versos, some soot soiling, minor chipping to couple corners for last 2 images, 1 image with scuffing & soiling), still G images, nice contrast, preserved in recent black cloth post-binder, posts at gutter margin, gilt lettering on front cover. This intriguing photo album depicts the leisure and promotional activities of the United Motors Co. Automobile Dealership, which combined three companies in 1917 into one. This newly created company -- selling over $1,000,000 in autos and trucks annually -- comprised the Northwest Auto Co. of Portland, F.W. Volger as President; the Cole Automobile Co. of Seattle controlled by W.C. Ruckman, and the George L. Trotter Co., Seattle, with George Trotter as President. The Northwest Auto Co. had been founded in 1908 by Volger, who later bought an Elgin & Westcott Automobile dealership in 1918 just after the merger. The sales manager, Hawkinson (1874-1956), had previously worked as a traveling salesman representing farm equipment, and automobile parts, was brought in as Sales Manager for United Motors Co. in 1918 when they succeeded J.S. Moltzner as dealers for Elgin & Westcott, on 529 Washington Street. The photo album begins with an image of the George L. Trotter Co. dealership which opened their operations selling Reo, Stearns & Indiana Trucks under the United Motors Co. banner in their new brick-faced dealership erected 1917-1918, with the next showing their upstairs service department. This is followed by photos of Hawkinson and one of the Portland dealership staff sitting in his office, with maps, sales charts, and automobile literature spread around the desk, followed by an image of the dealership on Washington St. with an Elgin Series 17 Open Sedan setting on the street corner. In addition, there have been included such images as the Thermoid Tires, sales racks, an image of a new 1918 Indiana truck being shown to a prospective buyer, and an excellent promotional image showing 1918 Reo, Cole 8, and other auto brands sold by United Motors Co. There are a series of promotional photos of a 1918 Stearns Touring car traveling down to the first company picnic in the Columbia River Gorge, embossed stamp of Jacobs Photo PI Building at lower corner. The series of photos commemorating the July 20, 1918 Picnic for United Motors Co. include a number of group shots (2 of which with pencil annotations on verso), with shots of the men, women, & their children eating, drinking, watching a fire on the beach, and setting amongst driftwood logs, with automobiles parked nearby. A series of photos taken of United Motors Co. automobiles stopping off at Crown Point, driving along the Columbia River Highway, and even a couple views of which appear to have been taken along the Sandy River are well executed by Arthur M. Prentiss (1865-1941), and Benjamin Gifford (1859-1936). At the time these were taken Prentiss had recently formed the studio with Gifford in 1916, and their shop was only seven blocks away from the United Motors Co. dealership on Washington. These company souvenir albums were often produced and distributed to the attendees, and company executives at the time. Frank Jacobs (1881-1979) was a pioneer in Northwest photojournalism, best remembered for his transportation disaster photos, including ship, train, and automobile wrecks. Cole Automobiles was an early adopter of the V-8 engine, which by 1917 was used in all of their models; Stearns automobiles were known for their luxury cars, and began using the Knight sleeve valve engines, introducing an electric starter in 1917, later becoming Stearns-Knight Co.; Elgin Motor Cars were initially very successful when they were founded in 1916, winning several endurance.
